The People's Bible Commentary - Jeremiah: A Bible commentary for every day

Author : Rex Mason
£7.99
The book of Jeremiah is one of the most moving of the Old Testament prophetic books. It reveals a prophet commissioned by God when still quite young, to bring a message of judgment that he would have preferred not to have to proclaim. While he remained obedient to his demanding call, at times he wondered whether even God had deserted him.

Jeremiah felt the people's sin acutely but also felt anguish for the punishment that he saw coming to them for their persistent disobedience to God. He was not to live to see the salvation he had predicted, speaking with a confidence based on his conviction in the ultimate triumph of God's love.
