In the book of Jeremiah, not only is the vocabulary of "word" and "words" uniquely prevalent, but formulae marking divine speech also play an unprecedented role in giving the book's final form its narrative and theological shape. Indeed, "the word of the Lord" is arguably the main character of Jeremiah, and a theology that is both distinctive and powerful emerges from the unfolding narrative.
In A Mouth Full of Fire: The Word of God in the words of Jeremiah, Andrew Shead examines the fascinating use by Jeremiah of word language; the prophet's formation as an embodiment of the word of God; his covenant preaching and the crisis it precipitates concerning the recognition of true prophecy; and, in the "oracles of hope," how the power of the word of God is finally made manifest.
Shead then brings this reading of Jeremiah to bear on some issues in contemporary theology, including the problem of divine agency and the doctrine of Scripture, and concludes by engaging Jeremiah's doctrine of the Word of God in conversation with Karl Barth.
This is a remarkable study that combines the fields of biblical theology, systematic theology, biblical studies, and the newly emerged theological interpretation of Scripture. While methodological considerations receive due, if succinct, discussion the point of the study is put adopted methodologies to use on a particular theme that emerges from Jeremiah's book.
"I am putting my words as a fire in your mouth; these people are tinder and it will consume them." (Jeremiah 5:14)

"Shead's book is an important contribution to the theological interpretation of the Bible. Those in the evangelical and confessional wings of the church will especially appreciate this illuminating engagement of the World of God in Jeremiah."
"I recommend A Mouth Full of Fire to any pastor, interested lay person, or scholar who desires to explore this new avenue of thought in prophetic research. Sheads addition to this series is exceptional and deserves recognition for his work in biblical studies and biblical theology."
