WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATURE The celebrated first memoir from arguably the most influential singer-songwriter in the country, Bob Dylan. “I’d come from a long ways off and had started a long ways down. But now destiny was about to manifest itself. I felt like it was looking right at me and nobody else.” So writes Bob Dylan in Chronicles: Volume One, his remarkable book exploring critical junctures in his life and career. Through Dylan’s eyes and open mind, we see Greenwich Village, circa 1961, when he first arrives in Manhattan. Dylan’s New York is a magical city of possibilities—smoky, nightlong parties; literary awakenings; transient loves and unbreakable friendships. Elegiac observations are punctuated by jabs of memories, penetrating and tough. With the book’s side trips to New Orleans, Woodstock, Minnesota, and points west, Chronicles: Volume One is an intimate and intensely personal recollection of extraordinary times. By turns revealing, poetical, passionate, and witty, Chronicles: Volume One is a mesmerizing window on Bob Dylan’s thoughts and influences. Dylan’s voice is distinctively American: generous of spirit, engaged, fanciful, and rhythmic. Utilizing his unparalleled gifts of storytelling and the exquisite expressiveness that are the hallmarks of his music, Bob Dylan turns Chronicles: Volume One into a poignant reflection on life, and the people and places that helped shape the man and the art.

The Chronicles are more than a history of ancient Israel under the ascent and rule of the Davidic dynasty. They are a story whose grand theme is hope. Great battles are fought, heroes and tyrants vie for power, Israel splits into rival kingdoms, and the soul of God’s holy nation oscillates between faithlessness and revival. Yet above this tossing sea of human events, God’s covenant promises reign untroubled and supreme. First and Second Chronicles are a narrative steeped in the best and worst of the human heart—but they are also a revelation of Yahweh at work, forwarding his purposes in the midst of fallible people. God has a plan to which he is committed. Today, as then, God redirects our vision from our circumstances in this turbulent world to the surety of his kingdom, and to himself as our source of confidence and peace. Exploring the links between the Bible and our own times, Andrew E. Hill shares perspectives on 1 and 2 Chronicles that reveal ageless truths for our twenty-first-century lives. Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable—but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together. This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our postmodern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today.

The priorities of medieval chroniclers and historians were not those of the modern historian, nor was the way that they gathered, arranged and presented evidence. Yet if we understand how they approached their task, and their assumption of God's immanence in the world, much that they wrote becomes clear. Many of them were men of high intelligence whose interpretation of events sheds clear light on what happened. Christopher Given-Wilson is one of the leading authorities on medieval English historical writing. He examines how medieval writers such as Ranulf Higden and Adam Usk treated chronology and geography, politics and warfare, heroes and villains. He looks at the ways in which chronicles were used during the middle ages, and at how the writing of history changed between the twelfth and fifteenth centuries.

The unique emotional power of each chronicle may be felt in the translation. The Chronicle of Solomon bar Samson is a moving narrative concerning the Rhineland massacres. The second chronicle, that of Eliezer bar Nathan, interprets some of the same events in elegiac style and liturgical language while the third chronicle, the Mainz Anonymous though fragmented, is highly analytical in nature. The fourth chronicle, Sefer Zekhirah, is a personal description of the Second Crusade, full of poignant detail. Together, the chronicles present a moving human record of these events, of value not only to professional historians but to all who seek to broaden their understanding of the Jewish experience.

The Chronicles of Froissart (1337-1410) are one of the greatest contemporary records of fourteenth-century England and France. Depicting the great age of Anglo-French rivalry from the deposition of Edward II to the downfall of Richard II, Froissart powerfully portrays the deeds of knights in battle at Sluys, Crecy, Calais and Poitiers during the Hundred Years War. Yet they are only part of this vigorous portrait of medieval life, which also vividly describes the Peasants' Revolt, trading activities and diplomacy against a backdrop of degenerate nobility. Written with the same sense of curiosity about character and customs that underlies the works of Froissart's contemporary, Chaucer, the Chronicles are a magnificent evocation of the age of chivalry.

That the departure of Columbus from Spain to the New World in 1492 was the agent of colossal change - both creative and destructive - in the Western hemisphere is self-evident. That it was also the literary agent to a host of writings chronicling that first voyage and the many Spanish explorations that followed over the next century is much less known. As a stream of explorers, men of arms, missionaries, and government functionaries made their way to the Indies, they recorded their experiences in letters, diaries, journals, and travelogues. Together these writings constitute a rich legacy of Spain's Golden Age, documenting through eyewitness accounts the adventures and tragedies incurred during the course of discovery, conquest, and colonization. Once of interest only to a small circle of historians, the Spanish chronicles have since the 500th anniversary of Columbus's first voyage come into vogue. Of the studies now available in the field, James Murray's is unique in offering a survey of both the chronicles themselves and the extant scholarship. It provides students of Spanish and Spanish American literature and history with a clear and comprehensive introduction to an eclectic area of study. Murray focuses on the chronicles long accepted as the most significant. These include the writings of Columbus and of his son Ferdinand on the navigation, discovery, and exploration of the Indies; of Corte's on his conquest of Mexico; of Cabeza de Vaca on the exploration of Florida; of Oviedo on the voyage to and natural history of the Indies; of the Franciscan monk Motolinia on the origins and culture of Mexico's Indians. The content and tone of each chronicle depended to a large extent on the practical concerns of the chronicler: the need of the explorer to convince those backing the expedition of the riches offered by the New World, of the missionary to justify work with the Indians, of the government emissary to validate the drive to colonize. With few exceptions, Murray writes, "the chronicles presented the conquerors' perspective of events and contributed to the hegemony of European values throughout the colonial period." In his review of the scholarship, Murray details the efforts to glean from the chronicles the impact of the conquest from the perspective of the "other" - of the indigenous population and of women, both Indian and Spanish. Contemporary scholars are also breaking ground in recognizing the cultural and linguistic complexity of colonial discourse, assessing the aesthetic and literary qualities of the texts, and examining transcriptions of oral tales. The Spanish chronicles of the Indies of the sixteenth century have both literary and historical value, Murray concludes, and belong to both Spain and Spanish America. The influence of the accounts as narrative can be traced to such acclaimed writers as Pablo Neruda and Gabriel Garcia Marquez; their contribution to the Western world's understanding of its social, political, cultural, and economic history, already inestimable, has yet to be completely disclosed.
