844543: The Theology of the Book of JeremiahThe Theology of the Book of Jeremiah (hardback edition)
The Theology of the Book of Jeremiah (paperback edition)
By Walter Brueggemann / Cambridge University Press

The present study focuses on the theology of the Book of Jeremiah. That theology revolves around themes familiar from Israel’s covenantal faith, especially the sovereignty of YHWH expressed in judgment and promise. The outcome of this theological nexus of context, person, and tradition is a book that moves into the abyss and out of the abyss in unexpected ways. It does so, in part, by asserting that God continues to be generatively and disturbingly operative in the affairs of the world, up to and including our contemporary abysses (such as 9/11). The God attested in the Book of Jeremiah invites its readers into and through any and all such dislocations to new futures that combine divine agency and human inventiveness rooted in faithfulness.

224431: Jeremiah: An Archaeological CompanionJeremiah: An Archaeological Companion
By Philip J. King / Westminster John Knox Press

Philip J. King utilizes archaeological artifacts and texts of the late seventh and early sixth centuries B.C.E., many of them unpublished or not easily accessible, to elucidate the text of Jeremiah, a book that is sometimes described as difficult. By doing so, King adds important spatial and temporal dimensions to the history of Israel and to the literature about the life of one of its most significant prophets. Includes black-and-white photos, diagrams, maps, notes, a glossary, bibliography, and index.

829350: Jeremiah: Kidner Classic CommentaryJeremiah: Kidner Classic Commentary
By Derek Kidner / IVP Academic

The prophet Jeremiah and King Josiah were born near the end of the longest, darkest reign in Judah’s history. Human sacrifice and practice of the black arts were just two features of the wickedness that filled Jerusalem with innocent blood from one end to the other. As outspoken prophet and reforming king, these two men gave their country its finest opportunity of renewal and its last hope of surviving as the kingdom of David.

The book of Jeremiah is full of turmoil and national tragedy, the drama of rediscovering the forgotten book of Mosaic law, and the story of key people like Baruch, Gedaliah, and Ebedmelech the Ethiopian. National events interweave with the lives of individuals; the rediscovered book of God’s law transforms Josiah, Jeremiah, and the future of the world.

Derek Kidner, in this volume that was formerly part of the widely respected The Bible Speaks Today series, gives careful attention to the text and reveals its startling relevance to our own troubled time.

139631DA: Jeremiah 1-20: Anchor Yale Bible Commentary [AYBC]  - Slightly ImperfectJeremiah 1-20: Anchor Yale Bible Commentary [AYBC] – Slightly Imperfect
By Jack R. Lundbom / Yale University Press

Jeremiah, long considered one of the most colorful of the ancient Israelite prophets, comes to life in Jack R. Lundbom’s opening volume, Jeremiah 1-20. From his boyhood call to prophecy in 627 b.c.e., which Jeremiah tried to refuse, to his scathing judgments against the sins and hypocrisy of the people of Israel, Jeremiah charged through life with passion and emotion. He saw his fellow Israelites abandon their one true God and witnessed the predictable outcome of their disregard for God’s word—their tragic fall to the Babylonians.

In this first book of the three-volume Anchor Bible commentary, Jack R. Lundbom’s eagerly awaited exegesis of Jeremiah investigates the opening twenty chapters. With considerable skill and erudition, Lundbom leads modern readers through this prophet’s often mysterious oracles, judgments, and visions. He quickly dispels the notion that the life and words of a seventh-century b.c.e. Israelite prophet can have no relevance for the contemporary reader. Clearly, Jeremiah was every bit as concerned as we are with issues like terrorism, hypocrisy, environmental pollution, and social justice.

This magisterial work of scholarship is designed to be essential to any biblical studies curriculum. It replaces John Bright’s landmark Anchor Bible commentary on Jeremiah. Like his predecessor, Lundbom draws on the best biblical scholarship to further our understanding of the Weeping Prophet and his message to the world.

139648DA: Jeremiah 21-36, Anchor Bible Commentary, Slightly ImperfectJeremiah 21-36, Anchor Bible Commentary, Slightly Imperfect
By Yale University Press

The second book of the three-volume Anchor Bible Commentary offers an astute translation and commentary on the middle sixteen chapters of Jeremiah. Important themes in the present volume include injustice within Judah’s royal house, sexual immorality among the clergy, and true versus false prophecy. Yet the prophet who thundered Yahweh’s judgment was also the one who gave the remnant people – in oracle and in symbolic action – a promise and a hope, expressed climactically in a new and eternal covenant for future days. Here too is the only report in the Bible of an accredited scribe writing up a scroll of oracles for public reading at the Temple. Jeremiah 21-36 draws on the best biblical scholarship to further our understanding of this preeminent prophet and his message to the world.

139655: Jeremiah 37-52: Anchor Yale Bible Commentary [AYBC]Jeremiah 37-52: Anchor Yale Bible Commentary [AYBC]
By Jack R. Lundbom / Yale University Press

In this final book of the three-volume commentary, Lundbom focuses on the last sixteen chapters of Jeremiah, one of antiquity’s most moving narratives from the Hebrew prophet who witnessed the demise of his nation. Denouncing injustice, sexual immorality, and false prophecy, Jeremiah thunders Yahweh’s judgment yet offers hope to the remnant people.

202298: The Pragmatics of Perception and Cognition in MT Jeremiah 1:1-6:30The Pragmatics of Perception and Cognition in MT Jeremiah 1:1-6:30
By Elizabeth R. Hayes / Walter de Gruyter

Recent advances in cognitive linguistics provide new avenues for reading and interpreting the Hebrew prophetic text. This volume utilizes a multi-layered cognitive linguistics approach to explore Jeremiah 1:1-6:30, incorporating insights from cognitive grammar, cognitive science, and conceptual blending theory.

While the modern reader is separated from the author of these texts by time, space, and culture, this analysis rests on the theory that both the author and the modern reader share common features of embodied experience. This opens the way for utilizing cognitive models, conceptual metaphor, and mental spaces theory when reading and interpreting ancient texts.

Jeremiah 1:1-6:30 serves as an example to demonstrate the dynamics of the method. The entire analysis demonstrates some of the strengths and weaknesses of using recent cognitive theories and methods for analyzing and interpreting ancient texts. While such theories and methods do not obviate the need for traditional interpretive methods, they do provide a more nuanced understanding of the ancient text.

82552: Jeremiah: T&T Clark Study GuidesJeremiah: T&T Clark Study Guides
By R. P. Carroll / Bloomsbury Academic

In Jeremiah: T&T Clark Study Guides R. P. Carroll provides a valuable, basic orientation/introduction to the modern, academic reading of this enigmatic and often troubling prophetic book. After carefully surveying and evaluating the historical-critical options that scholars have proposed over the last century, Carroll summarizes the message of the book within a pre-exilic, canonical context.

In the face of differing critical opinions on Jeremiah, he holds that the book has to be read as a coherent, pre-exilic tract that re-interprets the prophet’s message in the light of the post-exilic situation.

24581: Jeremiah Volume 2 and Lamentations: Daily Study Bible [DSB]Jeremiah Volume 2 and Lamentations: Daily Study Bible [DSB]
By Robert Davidson / Westminster John Knox Press

At the conclusion of volume 1, the prophet was depicted as steadfastly clinging to his faith in God in the midst of doubt and despair. In this volume, Davidson examines Jeremiah’s uncomfortable relationship with the political and religious establishments of his day. He guides us through the prophecies given in the last years of Jerusalem, the account of the fall of Jerusalem, the oracles against foreign nations, and a final historical appendix. In discussing Lamentations, Davidson states that in this biblical book are “not only moving and passionate expressions of grief and sorrow, but also of faith…Such faith was only possible for those who took seriously what Jeremiah had all along said about the inevitable working out of God’s judgement upon Jerusalem.”

233884: Jeremiah for EveryoneJeremiah for Everyone
By John Goldingay / Westminster John Knox Press

In this volume on Jeremiah, John Goldingay explores the longest and most complex of the prophetic books. Jeremiah was written for survivors of war, suffering, and exile. It portrays three Babylonian military invasions and the resulting destruction of the Jerusalem temple, which Jeremiah depicts as the end of the life God’s people had known. Themes in the book include questions such as: How could God allow this suffering? How did things go so terribly wrong? How could God abandon us? Can the flame of faith burn in the darkness?

Jeremiah has a reputation for being one of the most difficult books in the Bible to read. Despite its dense and jumbled appearance, Louis Stulman shows that Jeremiah’s prophecy is an artistic and symbolic tapestry held together by prose seams. Stulman explains how the prophetic book re-enacts the dismantling of Israel’s most cherished social and symbolic systems. In doing so it speaks poignantly of the horrors of war and military occupation, as well as the resultant despair and anger.

By J. Andrew Dearman / Zondervan

Jeremiah & Lamentations [NIVAC] treats readers to the excellent compositional skills and exceptional scholarly acumen and judgment of J. Andrew Dearman. Unlike many modern scholars, Dearman holds that the prophetic books are in fact prophetic and reflect their own culture while pointing towards the fulfillment of the covenant in Jesus Christ. Covenant and its renewal takes center stage in Jeremiah’s writings, and Dearman masterfully expounds the text and draws application with this focus.

826301: A Mouth Full of Fire: The Word of God in the Words of Jeremiah (New Studies in Biblical Theology)A Mouth Full of Fire: The Word of God in the Words of Jeremiah (New Studies in Biblical Theology)
By Andrew G. Shead / IVP Academic

Shead presents a biblical-theologically interpretive reading of Jeremiah through the lens on Jeremiah’s literary use of the concept of “word,” calling on Karl Barth as a conversation partner.

In the Book of Jeremiah, not only is the vocabulary of “word” and “words” uniquely prevalent, but formulae marking divine speech also play an unprecedented role in giving the book’s final form its narrative and theological shape. Indeed, “the word of the Lord” is arguably the main character of Jeremiah, and a theology that is both distinctive and powerful emerges from the unfolding narrative.

In A Mouth Full of Fire: The Word of God in the words of Jeremiah, Andrew Shead examines the fascinating use by Jeremiah of word language; the prophet’s formation as an embodiment of the word of God; his covenant preaching and the crisis it precipitates concerning the recognition of true prophecy; and, in the “oracles of hope,” how the power of the word of God is finally made manifest.

Shead then brings this reading of Jeremiah to bear on some issues in contemporary theology, including the problem of divine agency and the doctrine of Scripture, and concludes by engaging Jeremiah’s doctrine of the Word of God in conversation with Karl Barth.

This is a remarkable study that combines the fields of biblical theology, systematic theology, biblical studies, and the theological interpretation of Scripture. While methodological considerations receive due, if succinct, discussion, the point of the study is to put adopted methodologies to use on a particular theme that emerges from Jeremiah’s book.

“I am putting my words as a fire in your mouth; these people are tinder and it will consume them.” (Jeremiah 5:14)

By Francis Schaeffer / Crossway

Francis Schaeffer analyzes the decline of contemporary culture through parallel studies in Jeremiah and Romans. He identifies the link between the intellectual and spiritual orientation of a society and demonstrates that ideas do have consequences. This classic work helps Christians critically appraise the direction of our culture as it distances itself from its biblical moorings so that they may swim against its intellectual and practical tides that offer only moral death. A good introduction to Schaeffer’s works, this edition uses the definitive text of the book as edited by Schaeffer shortly before his death. Schaeffer’s son-in-law, Udo Middlemann, provides an introduction discussing the ongoing significance of Schaeffer’s insights.

59197: Jeremiah"s and Ezekiel"s Sign-Acts: Rhetorical Nonverbal  CommunicationJeremiah’s and Ezekiel’s Sign-Acts: Rhetorical Nonverbal Communication
By Kelvin Friebel / Bloomsbury Academic

The books of Jeremiah and Ezekiel contain the majority of the biblical accounts of prophetic sign-actions. By analyzing these two prophets’ actions according to the terms and concepts used in studies of nonverbal communication and rhetoric, this work seeks to bring conceptual and terminological clarity to the discussion of prophetic sign-acts and to enhance the perception of the prophets as persuasive communicators. Rather than prophetic sign-acts being viewed as having a magical derivation or as being inherently efficacious in bringing about what they portray, the sign-acts are viewed primarily as forms of nonverbal communication whose purpose was to have a persuasive impact upon spectators.

This critical assessment of the book of Jeremiah enables the reader to rediscover many of the most profound and relevant features of Jeremiah’s message and of the agonies and fears of those in its original audience. The picture that emerges of the prophet is an intensely moving one, often at variance with the conventional image of earlier popular reconstructions. Having witnessed the loss of most of the treasured and revered religious support of his day, Jeremiah discovered that the only secure foundation of hope is in God.
