Product Description

The prophet Jeremiah and King Josiah were born at the end of the longest, darkest reign in Judah's history. Human sacrifice and practice of the black arts were just two features of the wickedness that filled Jerusalem from one end to the other with innocent blood. As outspoken prophet and reforming king, these two men gave their country its finest opportunity of renewal and its last hope of surviving as the kingdom of David. The book of Jeremiah is full of turmoil and national tragedy, the story of key people like Baruch, Gedaliah, and Ebed-mel-ech the Ethiopian, and the drama of rediscovering the forgot ten books of Mosaic law. National events interweave with the lives of individuals; the rediscovered book of God's law transforms Josiah, Jeremiah, and the future of the world. Derek Kidner, with careful attention to the text, reveals its startling relevance to our own troubled time in his commentary on the message of Jeremiah. Derek Kidner is former warden of Tyndale House, Cambridge, and has authored numerous books and commentaries.

    Derek Kinder is Excellent!

    I have really enjoyed reading this handy little commentary book on Jeremiah. Excellent!

    I purchased the entire NT Series as well as a handful of OT Commentaries in the "Bible Speaks Today" Series.

    This is the first book I have read. I wanted to read the prophets who wrote pre-exile and after as opposed to Isaiah & Daniel, who writes more on after and the New Jerusalem & end times.

    Ezekiel is next, then Zechariah. However, this is a gem of a book.

    Kidner is a top-notch scholar and gifted writer. He writes from a conservative perspective. If anyone is seeking a brief, reliable, and accessible guide to the message of Jeremiah, this is it. As is typical for this series, the commentary is very brief. It only deals with the main message(s) of each passage. For other details, a larger, more comprehensive commentary should be sought. However, this book meets it's stated threefold purpose: "to expound the text with accuracy, to relate it to contemporary life, and to be readable."
