In this addition to the popular Interpretation commentary series, Clements draws an intensely moving portrait of Jeremiah, one that often conflicts with the conventional image of earlier commentaries. Having witnessed the loss of his most treasured religious supports, Jeremiah discovered that the only secure foundation of hope is in God. True to the Interpretation format, Clements helps preachers and teachers make effective parallels between Jeremiah's situation and today's spiritual issues. 276 Pages. Hardcover from John Knox Press.
