Overview

This book on Jeremiah seeks to inform students and lay readers of one of the truly great Hebrew prophets and extraordinary individuals of the ancient world. It presents major themes preserved in the book bearing Jeremiah’s name, one of the most prominent being Jeremiah’s understanding of himself as “the prophet like Moses.” Jeremiah remained faithful to his calling during the final days of Israel, when they fell to Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonians in 586 BC. He suffered along with everyone else, but was nevertheless numbered among the survivors. From his confinement in the court of the guard he gave a dispirited remnant hope for the future: Jeremiah most famously announced a new covenant that God would make with his people in future days.

Praise for the Print Edition

Only an experienced specialist like Jack Lundbom can present the difficult book of Jeremiah in such a succinct and engaging manner, outlining the trajectory from God’s promise and his powerful Word to the international orientation and lasting hope therein, and all set against the background of Israelite history and the biblical traditions. The book is well presented to engage today’s readers, with references to relevant political and historical situations, reflections, questions, and connections with the New Testament.

—Georg Fischer SJ, professor, University of Innsbruck, Austria

Jack Lundbom has contributed again on Jeremiah, this time aiming at the general reader. He wisely chose twelve scriptural sayings relating to the prophet, and expounded the themes therein. Reading this book, people can attend a holographic understanding of the prophet and his book. It serves as a springboard to theologies in the Old Testament. The reflection at the end of each chapter also extends the message to the contemporary. An excellent work!

—Jonathan Tsoi, associate professor of Old Testament, Lutheran Theological Seminary, Hong Kong
