2019 Biblical Foundations Book Award Finalist in Old Testament
Ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it. (Jeremiah 6:16) In Walking the Ancient Path, distinguished Old Testament scholar Walter C. Kaiser, Jr. draws on a lifetime of study to illuminate the book of Jeremiah for a contemporary audience. Following an introduction that surveys the historical and literary background of Jeremiah along with its theological emphases, Kaiser examines each verse of the text, explaining its meaning and significance. Every section is followed by devotional and application insights that guide the reader in applying the text to their everyday lives. Bibliographies in each section provide resources for further study, and most textual and linguistic matters are discussed in footnotes. Pastors, scholars, and serious students of the Bible will find this volume indispensable for understanding Jeremiah's message and how to apply it today.
