Jeremiah (Old Testament Library Series)

Leslie Allen

$129.99

Hardback

The book of Jeremiah offers a remarkable range of literature, including prose, poetry, oracles, homilies, and^proverbs. This commentary understands the book as a work of religious literature, to be examined in its final^form and yet with careful attention to the historical contexts of writing and development through which^the present text took shape. Jeremiah proclaimed a message of coming judgment, because of the people's^unfaithful worship, and yet also emphasized the call to know Yahweh and to live as God's faithful people.^Through it all, Allen identifies a trajectory of grace, in which the proclamations of doom can be understood^within the context of promises for a renewed future. With the publication of this volume on Jeremiah, the^Old Testament Library now has a commentary volume in print for every book in the Old Testament.
