The book of Jeremiah is arguably the longest and most complex book in the Bible. Jeremiah focuses on divine action and human response. The range and rigor of its rhetoric and the initial promise of the “new covenant” has left its mark on both the Old and New Testaments. This prophetic book presents many difficult literary, historical, and theological issues. In this volume of the highly successful Smyth & Helwys Bible Commentary Series, renowned Old Testament scholar Terence Fretheim expertly leads his readers through the difficulties to present the message of Jeremiah as one of grace and hope for today’s world. After a lengthy introduction, Fretheim’s commentary presents the text in sections and focuses on literary and theological issues. His thoughtful reflections are useful for teaching God’s message from the pulpit.
