J.A. Thompson's commentary on Jeremiah is one of the most thorough commentaries available for this important book. In it, he discusses issues such as Jeremiah's role as a prophet of Israel, issues with exegesis of the book, thehistorical setting, the life of Jeremiah, and of course, the book itself. With over 600 pages of commentary, Thompson gives the reader a complete picture of Jeremiah,making this commentary a valuable resource for any Old Testament student. Although technical enough for scholars to find it stimulating, lay people should have no trouble following Thompson through Jeremiah.
Thompson's study on the Book of Jeremiah is part of The New International Commentary on the Old Testament. Like its companion series on the New Testament, this commentary devotes considerable care to achieving a balance between technical information and homiletic-devotional interpretation.
