9780739143469: The Man Who Knew God: Decoding Jeremiah

The Man Who Knew God unravels the complexities of the book of Jeremiah and argues that this prophet is the key figure in shaping Western civilization. Mordecai Schreiber posits that Jeremiah is not only the one who eradicated paganism amongst the Hebrew people, but he can also be considered the founder of the post-biblical Jewish faith. Offering intriguing insight into Jeremiah's role in the founding of Western monotheism and the eradication of paganism amongst the Hebrew people, this book should be read by all those interested in Biblical studies, Jewish studies, and religion.

About the Author:

Rabbi Mordecai Schreiber is author of over 50 books on Judaic and linguistic topics, including Ask the Bible and Light to the Nations: From Biblical Promise to World Peace.

Review:

The Book of Jeremiah continues to sound its assurances and is demands in challenging contemporary ways. Rabbi Schreiber here provides an accessible entry into this remarkable prophetic person, voice, and tradition that live in the extremities of faith. Accenting the key issues in this prophetic articulation, Schreiber shows the bold way in which Jeremiah moves in revolutionary leaps beyond the closed tribalism of his antecedents. This wise book merits careful and sustained attention. It will evoke conversation that will continue to vex and nourish responsible faith, just the vexation and nourishment the prophet himself intended. The move toward an inclusive openness voiced by the prophet continues to be a demanding agenda for his present-day readers. (Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary)

Books like Mordecai Schreiber's The Man Who Knew God: Decoding Jeremiah are important because they clue us in on what we are missing....the author does an admirable job of elucidating the remarkable historical significance of the prophet for Jews and Christians. (Tikkun, July/August 2010)

Jeremiah is a critically important sacred author but not easily understood. Rabbi Schreiber takes his readers through the vicissitudes of history, theology and linguistics in a way which is scholarly but also accessible and spiritually rewarding. . . . Highly recommending this work, I likewise express hope that teh author would consider follow-up volumes on the other major prophets. (The Catholic Response, Fall 2010)

Rabbi Schreiber's central idea, that Jeremiah was the model upon which the author of the famous Suffering Servant songs in the book of Isaiah based these poems and which, in turn, served as a significant inspiration for Jesus' ministry, is both elegantly simple and profoundly important for Jews and Christians. It is high time that we celebrate what we have in common rather than fighting over our diffrences. Rabbi Schreiber helps us to do that. (Alice Ogden Bellis, Howard University School of Divinity)

What Mordecai Schreiber has achieved in this work, The Man Who Knew God: Decoding Jeremiah is nothing short of some very incisive detective work.... Schreiber makes a strong case for the exceptional teachings of Jeremiah.... The book is supplemented by a map of the Kingdom of Judah in Jeremiah's time, a relevant timeline of events, a chronology of events in the book of Jeremiah, as well as Notes, a Bibliography, an Index, and Index of Biblical Passages. (CCAR Journal: The Reform Jewish Quarterly)

The Man Who Knew God unravels the complexities of the book of Jeremiah and argues that this prophet is the key figure in shaping Western civilization. Mordecai Schreiber posits that Jeremiah is not only the one who eradicated paganism amongst the Hebrew people, but he can also be considered the founder of the post-biblical Jewish faith. (Shofar: An Interdisciplinary Journal Of Jewish Studies)

Schreiber has written an excellent monograph on Jeremiah's life and message.... With valuable insights into the text of the Bible, The Man Who Knew God provides a stimulating read and is highly recommended to anyone interested in the study of Jeremiah, particularly, and in biblical prophecy.

(Andrews University Seminary Studies)
