Product Description

The Book of Jeremiah consists of an unusual variety of literature---prose, poetry, oracles, homilies, and proverbs---and conveys a message of judgment for Israel's unfaithfulness. With careful attention to the book's historical context and how the various writings took shape, Allen also identifies a trajectory of grace---and a promise for future renewal. 546 pages, hardcover from Westminster John Knox.

Publisher's Description

This book of Jeremiah offers a remarkable range of literature, including prose, poetry, homilies, oracles, and proverbs. This commentary understands the book as a work of religious literature, to be examined in its final form and yet with careful attention to the historical contexts of writing and development through which the present text took shape. Jeremiah proclaimed a message of coming judgment, because of the people's unfaithful worship, and yet also emphasized the call to know Yahweh and to live as God's faithful people. Through it all, Allen identifies a tragectory of grace, in which the proclamations of doom can be understood within the context of promises for a renewed future.

The Old Testament Library provides fresh and authoritative treatments of important aspects of Old Testament study through commentaries and general surveys. The contributors are scholars of international standing.
