In Elmer A. Martens’ commentary on Jeremiah, read about Israel’s failures, fascination with other gods, and disregard for justice. There are passionate appeals for change, admonitions, laments, exhortations, and threats. But there are also promises, forgiveness, and the promise of a new covenant.
“Few commentaries available today are both scholarly and practical. Martens has produced a work that is both.” -Mennonite Brethren Herald
