Item description for Jeremiah and Lamentations, Volume 2: Chapters 21 to 52 (OT Daily Study Bible Series) by Davidson...
Overview The Daily Study Bible Series on the Old Testament is an extension of the Barclay's commentary on the New Testament. Coming from a conservative view of scripture these works are geared towards the lay person. They are scholarly but easy to read. This volume covers the second half of Jeremiah (chap. 21-52) and all of Lamentations.
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.. Such faith was only possible for those who took seriously what Jeremiah had all along said about the inevitable working out of God's judgment upon Jerusalem."
Carrying forward brilliantly the pattern established by Barclay's New Testament series, the Daily Study Bible has been extended to cover the entire Old Testament as well. Invaluable for individual devotional study, for group discussion, and for classroom use, the Daily Study Bible provides a useful, reliable, and eminently readable way to discover what the Scriptures were saying then and what God is saying today.
