When Jesus came, some of his contemporaries thought that he was Jeremiah reincarnated. Yet many Bible students today know less about him than about a host of other Old Testament heroes. One who turns to commentaries for help will find that many of them are filled with complex discussions of strange Hebrew words and consideration of technical, critical questions with which most of us are totally unconcerned. If you are a student of the Bible who would like to understand the character and preaching of Jeremiah, you’ll be grateful for L. A. Mott’s Thinking Through Jeremiah. Foreword by Sewell Hall.
