Product Description

In what was one of the most tumultuous periods in the history Judah, God sent the prophet Jeremiah to witness to the covenant by which the nation was bound to God. Both preceeding and during his lifetime Judah had undergone a number of political crises, the final of which it was Jeremiah's unhappy task of announcing to a belligerant and stubborn nation.

In Jeremiah and Lamentations prolific scholar R.K. Harrison follows Jeremiah's ministry as he speaks God's word to the nation in its historical context while illuminating its exegetical significance and theological meaning. In doing so Harison makes these books, two of the most fascinating, and ultimatley tragic books of the entire Bible, come alive. This commentary will make an excellent tool for Bible Studies, or for course reading in the prophets, and they are especially useful for ministers.

These commenatries are designed to help the reader understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting and purpose. Following a Structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. The goal throughout is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

Publisher's Description

With the ancient Near East in a state of ferment and the nation of Judah experiencing a succession of political crises, God stationed a man on the scene to speak the divine word. Jeremiah was called by God to the unhappy task of telling 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, leaving as part of his spiritual legacy a demonstration of a man's ability to make religious life an essentially personal relationship with God. The structural analysis of this commentary, along with the historical and cultural background it provides, opens up to modern readers one of the Old Testament's most fascinating books. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

    Harrison was a highly respected Old Testament scholar, author, and editor in latter part of the 20th century. He writes from an intelligently conservative stance. Harrison is very insightful and writes well. Unfortunately, this commentary is brief and now somewhat dated. However it maintains its value as a supplemental commentary when used alongside a more recent and more detailed work. Its price makes it an even better value.
