Highlights of This Volume
More than any other prophet, Jeremiah models the servant of God whose heart is in tune with God's heart. His life and ministry also uniquely foreshadowed that of the Lord Jesus Christ. In this commentary on Jeremiah-Lamentations, Dr. Huey writes with the mind of a scholar who has spent many years studying and teaching these books. But he also writes with the heart of a pastor committed to nurturing the church with the biblical message of a holy but compassionate God determined to transform vessels broken and defiled by sin into obedient servants restored and purified by his power and grace.
