Description

The Prophet Jeremiah addressed the people of Judah and Jerusalem over a forty-year period leading up to the destruction of Jerusalem in 587 BC. The book of Jeremiah addressed the exiles, especially those in Babylon, in the years after the catastrophe.

First of all then, says Chris Wright, we must encounter Jeremiah the prophet who, from his youth to old age, delivered the word of God to the people of Israel at the most terrifying time in all their troubled history. Understanding his times is essential to understanding his life and message. Next, we must strive to grasp how this enormous book (the second longest in the Bible, after Psalms) has been put together. And finally, if Jeremiah spoke in his day, and if the book still speaks today, in both cases it is because of the God who called the man to speak and commanded the book to be written. So we must encounter the God of Jeremiah an encounter that should be both profoundly disturbing and ultimately reassuring, as it was for him.

In the end, Jeremiah is a book of the victory of God's love and grace. His redemptive, reconstructive work fills the book's future horizon a future that we see fulfilled in the New Testament through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, the Messiah; and ultimately in God's dwelling with his redeemed people forever in the new creation.

“Excellent for group or individual study”

I bought this excellent book when I started to study Jeremiah with a small group of friends. On a high after a thrilling study of Daniel, but daunted by the length of Jeremiah, I was not sure of my ability to stick with it, but Christopher Wright's book has helped enormously. Full of background information and spiritual insight it really has proved to be an invaluable tool for our study, and helpful in improving our understanding of the style and structure of Jeremiah, without which I am sure I would have floundered. Christopher Wright has made the prophet accessible to us as a person, enabling us to see him in his own context and also to apply his words to our own.
This is the first book that I have read in the series The Bible Speaks Today, but it has ensured that I will certainly read more.
