It does so, in part, by asserting that God continues to be generatively and disturbingly operative in the affairs of the world, up to and including our contemporary abysses (such as 9/11).

    "Walter Brueggemann's study of Jeremiah fits perfectly in this promising series. Writing with characteristic passion and lucidity, Brueggemann boldly approaches Jeremiah with deep prophetic conviction himself. His treatment leads the reader through the scholarly debates into the ancient world of exile to our world of shoah and terror, and in the process mines Jeremiah for all its theological worth." --William P. Brown, Columbia Theological Seminary
