Let me illustrate how highly I regard this book: if you walked into my office and said, "So, I need to understand the book of Jeremiah," I'd just hand you this book. Well,actually...no. I'd write the name of this book on a Post-It and hand the note to you 'cause this book is NEVER leaving my office.

McConville has a very particular agenda: to debunk the myths that 1) Jeremiah is simply a "Deuteronomistic" work (over against Robert Carroll and Winfried Thiel) and 2) it has no overarching organization or theological point (over against William McKane). However, McConville doesn't spend his time poking holes in their arguments; rather, he spends his time building a reading of entire book of Jeremiah sensitive to the book's unique accent and argument.

Masterful, masterful work. ( )
