The wisdom of the ages can still be read through the Crossway Classic Commentary series, history's finest commentaries on individual books of the Bible. Each volume has been carefully edited and tailored for today's reader, but also carefully preserves the original meaning and message of the expositor. In this work on Jeremiah and Lamentations, John Calvin explains the prophet Jeremiah's emphasis on God's mercy and kindness toward His chosen but erring people.
Throughout the history of Christianity, many great minds have devoted themselves to the study and exploration of the Bible in pursuit of spiritual insight. Believers today are fortunate to benefit from this impressive history of inquiry and inspiration.
The Crossway Classic Commentary series is a collection of book-by-book biblical commentaries covering the Old and the New Testaments, written by intellectual and spiritual giants of the Christian tradition and carefully translated and adapted for the modern reader. Authors include ministers, preachers, and scholars such as Martin Luther, John Calvin, Charles Hodge, Matthew Henry, and more.
Each title includes an introduction to the biblical text by series editors Alister McGrath and J. I. Packer.
