Jeremiah served as a prophetic voice in a crumbling world. He spoke out against kings and rulers, and suffered for his role in proclaiming God’s truth. His complex book is filled with history, poetry, and prophecy, and in this commentary, John L. McKay helps modern readers decipher the details and apply Jeremiah to today. He examines the life of Jeremiah, the structure and theology of the books, as well as translation difficulties. He then provides nearly 500 pages of commentary on the first twenty chapters of Jeremiah.

John L. Mackay's commentary on Jeremiah is a first class explanation of the prophet. . . . It is certain to become the first ‘port of call’ in my studies of the book. . . . He has the ability to uncover the significance of the original message in such a way as to leave the application (almost) transparent.
—Stephen Dray, Ferndale Baptist Church, Southend-on-Sea, England
The commentary is as full as is reasonably possible, verse by verse, often word by word, and covers every question likely to be raised.
