Item description for Commentary-Jeremiah Lamentations (NIV Application Comme) by J. Andrew Dearman...

Jeremiah/Lamentations, which is part of the NIV Application Commentary Series, helps readers learn how the messages of Jeremiah and Lamentations can have the same powerful impact today that they did when they were first written.

Publishers Description
The books of Jeremiah and Lamentations cannot be separated from the political conditions of ancient Judah. Beginning with the righteous king Josiah, who ushered in a time of glorious but brief religious reform, Jeremiah reflects the close tie between spiritual and political prosperity or disaster, between the actions and heart of Judah and her kings and their fortunes as a nation. While few of us today have any firsthand understanding of what it means to live in a theocracy, the central theme of Jeremiah and Lamentations remains clear and still holds true: God first, politics second. The words, prayers, and poems of 'the weeping prophet' serve to realign us with God s priorities, turning us from evil and encouraging us to pursue God and his ways. With emotion and spiritual depth, these prophetic writings beckon us toward a spiritual integrity that can still affect the course of individuals and nations today. Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable--but the job is only half done The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together. This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our postmodern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today."

Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Jeremiah Lamentations (NIV Application Comme)?

Among the Best in the Series  Feb 27, 2007
I agree with the second reviewer that the first reviewer (some kind of self-proclaimed "Bible teacher") has some serious anger management issues.

My take is that this is an excellent and well-written contribution to the NIVAC series. In case anyone is wondering, because of the first review, Dearman holds a BA from UNC, an MDiv from Princeton, and a PhD from Emory. He has written "Hosea" in the NICOT (a much more technical commentary series), and has served on the editorial board of the Journal of Biblical Literature for the Society of Biblical Literature, one of most highly-respected such societies in the world. So, rest assured, unless you hold tenure at a reputable seminary, Dearman knows Hebrew far better than you do.

great theology  Jan 8, 2006
Boy did the first reviewer have a axe to grind! Longman rates this commentary five stars. He states that it is "a very sensitive theological reading that also brings these two books into touch with the contemporary world."
Reformed theology at it's worst  Sep 11, 2004
I'm all for a 4 point Calvinistic view, but this book is terrible because the author is so bent on making everything "spiritual" and not literal or forcing his "the church has replaced Israel" scheme. I should've realized this when the back cover states that he teaches at a Presbyterian Seminary in Austin.

He doesn't deal with the text exegetically, there are barely any footnotes, and it seems that he has no knowledge of Hebrew. I'm surprised the series chose him to do this book, because he is by NO MEANS a scholar, and as I said, I don't even think he knows Hebrew! He also doesn't deal with other commentaries or other current literature/scholarship on Jeremiah! What a let down!

Mr. Dearman comes to the text with blatant presuppositions, and his Reformed views blinds him from careful exegesis. I simply don't understand how these "scholars" can be so confident that their hermeneutics and conclusions are right. The author basically says in the introduction that NOTHING in Jeremiah should lead us to any conclusions about the nation of Israel, or a millennium, etc. Some bold claims, considering the hearers of Jeremiah would have certainly thought about a literal Israel and a future kingdom.

Even if you side with a Reformed eschatology, the book is not one of the best in the NIVAC series simply because there is so little handling of the text or cultural background or theology, or the original meaning. I'm returning it. It is VERY slim for the 2nd longest Old Testament book (2nd to Psalms). And, considering he's supposed to be covering Jeremiah and Lamentations, it's amazing how this book is so short. Save your money, this book is terrible. I'm surprised the editor of the series let this in....
