Jeremiah's poignant lament over Judah's social and religious disintegration reflects God's own pathos-laden yearning for his disobedient covenant people. In this widely praised expository commentary Walter Brueggemann, one of the premier Old Testament scholars of our time, explores the historical setting and message of Jeremiah as well as the text's relevance for the church today.

Offering a fresh look at the critical theological issues in the Jeremiah tradition, Brueggemann argues that Jeremiah's voice compels us to rediscern our own situation, issuing an urgent invitation to faith, obedience, justice, and compassion.

This combined edition of Brueggemann's original two-volume work, published until recently as part of the International Theological Commentary series, is an essential resource for students, pastors, and general readers alike. It is reprinted here with a new introduction by Brueggemann that surveys the current state of Jeremiah studies.

From the Back Cover:

This widely praised expository commentary by Walter Brueggemann - one of the premier Old Testament scholars of our time - explores the historical and social milieu of Jeremiah and offers a theological interpretation of this central book of the Old Testament. In contrast to current approaches to Jeremiah, Brueggemann uses a combination of sociological and literary analysis to provide a fresh look at the critical theological issues in the Jeremiah tradition - a look that ultimately yields compelling insights into the message and significance of Jeremiah both for this tumultuous period in the history of ancient Israel and for our own complicated times. This combined edition of Brueggemann's original two-volume work, published until recently as part of the International Theological Commentary series, will continue to be an essential resource for pastors, students, and general readers. It is reprinted here with an important new preface by Brueggemann that surveys the current state of Jeremiah studies.
