An engaging "life and times of Prophet Jeremiah," readers are taken back to the last decades of the nation of Judah. Kings, Priests, and "Prophets" drive them to oblivion, while Jeremiah wills them to survive. He is threatened and abused but never backs down, strengthened by his remarkable personal-relationship with the Living God. A true story of triumph and failure that will leave you inspired and looking for more.
The first section of the book, "Stumbling onto the National Stage," transports readers to Jerusalem to observe three critical stages in the City's rise and fall. This backdrop shows how desperately the prophet was needed, whether anyone realized it or not.
The second section, "Waves of Opposition," allow readers to witness the physical and emotional abuse inflicted on this indomitable man. Expect yourself to weep and be angered as you watch these events. But the courage, commitment and strength of this man is an inspiration to behold.
The third section, "Dialogues with Supreme Commander," details a remarkable 40-year "conversation" between God and his servant. These 10 dialogues are present in the book of Jeremiah, but overlooked in literature until now. This dynamic, interactive relationship is incredible. You will not walk away unmoved.
The book concludes with 10 appendices, essays that illuminate more of the background and dynamics of the Book of Jeremiah.
