At the conclusion of Volume 1 of Robert Davidson's commentary on the book of Jeremiah, the prophet is depicted as steadfastly clinging to his faith in God in the midst of doubt and despair. In this volume Robert Davidson examines Jeremiah's uncomfortable relationship with the political and religious establishments of his day. He guides us through the prophecies given in the last years of Jerusalem, the account of the fall of Jerusalem, the oracles against foreign nations, and a final historical appendix. In discussing Lamentations, Davidson states that in this biblical book are found "not only moving and passionate expressions of grief and sorrow, but also of faith...
