The "Weeping Prophet," the rabbis said, began wailing the moment he was born. Jeremiah had reason to weep--he witnessed the devastating consequences of Israel's rejection of God.
Sadly, the relativism Jeremiah saw in ancient Israel predominates in America today. That's why his words are so relevant for our lives. Better than anyone else, Jeremiah exemplifies through his courage, passion, even his sufferings, how believers can live for God in a society that has turned against Him.
While the book of Jeremiah shared the last, desperate days of the Jerusalem he loved, Lamentations expresses the cries of his heart. Yet they reveal more than the prophet's grief-they are an attempt to reflect on the meaning of human suffering. Lamentations gives voice to the deepest agonies, with the hope that some comfort may come from crying out to God for mercy. Together the two books illustrate the eternal principle that humanity reaps what he sows.It is a lesson the world-and the church-needs to hear. With the heart of a pastor and the knowledge of a scholar, Philip Graham Ryken applies these words of life to us today. His commentary, Jeremiah and Lamentations: From Sorrow to Hope will not only help you understand and teach from these spiritually relevant books, but inspire you with the courage and passion of God's personal call for you to live in these times.
Preaching the Word commentaries are written by pastors for pastors, as well as for all who teach or study God's word. With pastor R. Kent Hughes as the series editor, experienced pastors and teachers model expository preaching and practical application. This series is noted for its steadfast commitment to biblical authority, clear exposition of Scripture, and readability. It is widely accessible for seasoned and new pastors, as well as men and women hungering to read the Bible in a fresh way.
Ryken applies Jeremiahs words to a contemporary audience, urging us to search out spiritual fractures that may lie beneath the comfortable surface of daily life. Part of the popular Preaching the Word series.
Philip Graham Ryken (DPhil, University of Oxford) is president of Wheaton College and, prior to that, served as senior minister at Philadelphias historic Tenth Presbyterian Church. He has written or edited over 30 books, and has lectured and taught at universities and seminaries worldwide.
This series resonates with the priorities of the pulpit. No academic aloofness here, but down-to-earth, preacher-to-preacher meat for God's people.
The single best resource for faithful biblical exposition available today. A great book for genuine reformation!
There is a long history of informed, edifying biblical expositions that have been mightily used of God to shape and strengthen the church. These volumes admirably fit this tradition.
Throughout the Christian centuries, working pastors have been proving themselves to be the best of all biblical expositors. Kent Hughes stands in this great tradition, and his exciting expositions uphold it worthily.
