Ask any Christian to name their favourite books in the Bible, and you’re unlikely to find the book of Jeremiah at the top of the list - or even on any list. Most of us tend to ignore Jeremiah completely. Yet he has a lot to say to us, and has been rightly identified as a prophet for post-Christian times.
As Jeremiah tearfully tells us about what life without God looks like, his message has startling relevance to us today. In these Life Every Day notes Jeff Lucas focuses not on the history, but on the message the prophet brought to a nation that was light years away from God and about to experience judgment, and considers the call and message of this young twenty-something who lived 2600 years ago, but who definitely has some important things to say to us today.
