How do we learn to risk, to trust, to pursue wholeness and excellence—to run with the horses and live life at its best? In a series of profound reflections on the life of Jeremiah the prophet, Eugene Peterson explores the heart of what it means to be fully and genuinely human. This special commemorative edition includes a new preface from Peterson's son and a six-session Bible study guide.
The prophetic ministry of Jeremiah took place during a chaotic time for the people of Israel. Reflecting on these verses, Reformation commentators heard not only hope for the renewal of Israel, but prophetic promise for the coming of the Messiah. In this RCS volume J. Jeffery Tyler guides readers through a diversity of early modern commentary on the books of Jeremiah and Lamentations.
Jeremiah was called by God to tell an unheeding nation it was going to be judged and destroyed. Often he seemed to despair, yet he continued to utter God's truth fearlessly. R.K. Harrison provides structural analysis, and historical and cultural background to open up to modern readers one of the Old Testament's most fascinating books.
Lifting out the understated themes of love, grace, promise and renewal in Jeremiah and Lamentations, this commentary by Hetty Lalleman opens our eyes to an important chapter in salvation history.
A replacement volume in the Bible Speaks Today Old Testament commentary series, this book offers a new exposition on Jeremiah, a book of the victory of God's love and grace. The prophet's redemptive, reconstructive work comprises the book's portrait of the future--a future that we see fulfilled in the New Testament through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah.
In this New Studies in Biblical Theology volume, Andrew Shead examines Jeremiah's commissioning, embodiment of the word of God, covenant preaching and "oracles of hope." He shows how a differentiation between the divine "word" and the prophet's "words" enables the word of God to function as an organizing center for the book's theology.
With this new volume, IVP's Black Dictionary series completes its coverage of the Old Testament canonical books. A true compendium of recent scholarship, the volume includes 115 articles covering all aspects of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, the twelve "minor prophets" and Daniel.
The latest addition to the Ancient Christian Texts series offers a first-ever English translation of Jerome's Commentary on Jeremiah.

Jeremiah, the weeping prophet, prophesied for four decades under the last five kings of Judah—from 627 to 587 B.C. His mission: a call to repentance.

This ACCS volume on these two biblical books will give you insight and encouragement in the life of faith as seen through ancient pastoral eyes.
