T&T Clark Study Guides: Jeremiah


T&T Clark 1997

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


According to R.P. Carroll, the book of Jeremiah is long, complex and difficult, and to the modern reader it appears to be a repetitive mess, mixing poetry and prose in no particular order. There appear to be traces of attempts to collate and give order to some parts of the material, but the cacophony of voices heard in the book make it difficult to accept the single attribution of the work to the man mentioned in the first verse of chapter one. The reader who is not confused by the book of Jeremiah has not understood it, Carroll states. He attempts to sort out this complicated biblical text by examining the contents and structure of the book, editions of Jeremiah, theories of the formation of the book, cycles of poetry and prose, the narratives, the figure of Jeremiah and the Theo-politics of the book. He then wraps up with a chapter entitled “Senses of an Ending” in which he addresses the confusing multiple endings of Jeremiah and offers insights on each of these.
