Set apart as a prophet before he was born, Jeremiah was called to proclaim God's righteous judgment to a people who had turned against their Creator. The "weeping prophet" was a faithful witness to the God who keeps his covenant promises, tempering a message of judgment with the promise of mercy.
In this commentary, Philip Graham Ryken helps pastors, church leaders, and Bible teachers understand, teach, and apply the prophetic books of Jeremiah and Lamentations, showing their ongoing relevance for the Christian's walk with Christ. Through faithful exposition, Ryken reveals the gospel's promise that even in the midst of God's judgment, mercy and grace will have the final word.
The prophet Jeremiah is a supreme example of how believers can live well in a society that has turned against God. While the book of Jeremiah chronicles the last, desperate days of Jerusalem before it is conquered by an invading army, Lamentations expresses the cries of Jeremiah's heart for the fallen city. Together, the two books reflect on the meaning of human suffering and illustrate the eternal principle that a man will reap what he sows. In this commentary, Philip Graham Ryken helps pastors, church leaders, and Bible teachers understand and teach these spiritually relevant books, inspiring readers to respond to God's personal call to live for him in these troubled times.
