Jeremiah: The Man and His Message

"One cannot separate Jeremiah's personal experiences from his message. God's gracious, firm guidance of his own life nurtured his confidence in the grace of God to transform Israel's future. Jeremiah's own pilgrimage of judgment and grace became a paradigm which conveyed the character and will of the living God to Israel and beyond. If total obedience to the Lord of covenant grace is major lesson of scripture, no one in the Old testament taught it better than Jeremiah."
