  • Pages: 200

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The book of Jeremiah stands as one of the most important examples of Old Testament prophetic writing. Its author, Jeremiah, produced a lengthy record of God’s specific instruction for his ministry and negative assessment of Israel’s spiritual state. Noted Baptist author and Christian biographer F.B. Meyer thematically approaches the text with vibrant descriptions of the prophet Jeremiah’s development. Chapters include Jeremiah’s initial call in “The Word of the Lord Came Unto Me,” an image-rich discourse on “Cistern-making,” “On the Potter’s Wheel,” and “The Fall of Jerusalem.” This volume explores the significance of historical events from Jeremiah’s life and offers helpful application for Christians today.

The author endeavors to tell the story of the brilliant prophet chronologically. He finds a special message in the ministry of Jeremiah for those compelled to stand alone and to be misunderstood in their serving their fellow-men whom they passionately love.
