The first book of Chronicles is a review of Samuel and Kings but it is also a record of lineage and a census from the time of Adam. We also get background information not mentioned in Samuel and Kings. For example, God did not approve of King David's many killings in 22:8: "You have shed much blood and have fought many wars. You are not to build a house for my Name, because you have shed much blood on the earth in my sight." God honored Solomon with privilege to build His temple because Solomon was a man of rest or peace.
