:How do we think about the theology of the book of Jeremiah? Do we consider themes section by section, or do we step back and look at the whole? John Goldingay says "both." In The Theology of Jeremiah, Goldingay considers the prophet Jeremiah himself, his individual circumstances and those of Judah, and his message. Though Jeremiah's message varies throughout the book, we gain insights into Jeremiah's theology by viewing the book in its entirety. In doing so, we learn about God, Israel as the people of God, the nature of wrongdoing and prophecy, and what we know about the future.
John Goldingay (Ph.D., University of Nottingham) is David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. His books include Models for Scripture; Models for Interpretation of Scripture; Walk On; and commentaries on Psalms (Baker Commentary on the Old Testament Wisdom and Psalms - 3 volumes); Isaiah (New International Bible Commentary); Daniel (Word Biblical Commentary); The Message of Isaiah 40-55: A Literary-Theological Commentary; and with David Payne, Isaiah 40-66 (International Critical Commentary - 2 volumes), and the recently completed Old Testament Theology(three volumes from InterVarsity Press). His major project is now to complete the series Old Testament for Everyone Bible commentary series
