Jeremiah 1-20 YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Jeremiah, long considered one of the most colorful of the ancient Israelite prophets, comes to life in Jack R. Lundbom's "Jeremiah 1-20". From his boyhood call to prophecy in 627 b.c.e., which Jeremiah tried to refuse, to his scathing judgments against the sins and hypocrisy of the people of Israel, Jeremiah charged through life with passion and emotion. He saw his fellow Israelites abandon their one true God, and witnessed the predictable outcome of their disregard for God's word - their tragic fall to the Babylonians.The first book of a three-volume "Anchor Bible" commentary, Jack R. Lundbom's eagerly awaited exegesis of "Jeremiah" investigates the opening twenty chapters of this Old Testament giant. With considerable skill and erudition, Lundbom leads modern readers through this prophet's often mysterious oracles, judgments, and visions. He quickly dispels the notion that the life and words of a seventh-century b.c.e. Israelite prophet can have no relevance for the contemporary reader. Clearly, Jeremiah was every bit as concerned as we are with issues like terrorism, hypocrisy, environmental pollution, and social justice.This impressive work of scholarship, essential to any biblical studies curriculum, replaces John Bright's landmark "Anchor Bible" commentary on "Jeremiah". Like its predecessor, "Jeremiah 1-20" draws on the best biblical scholarship to further our understanding of the weeping prophet and his message to the world.
He Was There All the Time Guardian Books

I met Harold Dixon at a party some thirty-six years ago. He stood out as the best dancer in the room, and even if a woman had "two left feet," he could make her move as if she were a trained ballroom dancer. To me, he was a leader and we established a friendship that still endures. Over the years, I have shared in many of Harold's life experiences, including the period of time when he believed he was a lost soul, worthless and destined for failure. We spent countless hours in conversations about life, relationships, self-esteem, actions and consequences, religion, destiny, etc. Harold's transformation to the man of God he is today is truly a miracle. I am blessed to still have him as a lifetime friend. Readers, you will be mesmerized by Harold's candid account of his life, how he overcame many obstacles and the remarkable way in which he is able to link the scriptures to each of his situations. I pray you too will find peace and can acknowledge God's blessings and miracles by reading He Was There All the Time. -Yvonne Brown "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations" (Jeremiah 1:5 NIV). Through sorrow, anger, pain, loneliness, sickness, distress, separation and lack of sustainable resources, from childhood to adulthood, when I never knew Him or considered having a relationship with Him, He was there, observing, intervening, comforting, healing, providing and resolving situations. The purpose of He Was There All the Time is to highlight that the omnipotent, omnipresent God is loving, caring and kind, always watching and taking care of you, even though you may not acknowledge it. What is your experience today? What needs do you require to be filled? Do you think no one cares? You too can understand and experience the supernatural power and authority of God. The answer is here. Someone cares! Harold St. Anthony Dixon grew up devoted to the Catholic faith. Unlike other children his age, Harold suffered several illnesses, including vision problems and behavioural disorders along with a speech impediment and intellectual disability. In addition to all the difficulties experienced in life, his insecurities had him believing that he was a misfit and a burden to his family. He believed no one really loved him. However, he was a special child in God's eyes, as you will notice when you read the book. In October 1996, he had a personal encounter with God that would transform his life and religious beliefs. Today he is reaching out to others, most importantly to the hopeless, guiding them to the Lord.
