The Preaching the Word commentary series is noted for its unqualified commitment to biblical authority and clear exposition for Scripture. Its volumes are insightful and practical--an ideal resource for pastors and all students of the Bible. This newest addition, in which the author explores Jeremiah and Lamentations, is no exception. He explains how better than anyone else, Jeremiah reveals the spiritual fractures beneath the comfortable surface of daily life both in the prophet's lifetime and in the present day. With the heart of a pastor and the knowledge of a scholar, the author applies these words of life to us today.
