"I've pitched my tent in the land of hope." Acts 2:26 There's no emotion quite so vulnerable as hope. We pin it to our wildest plans, and as we know all too well, sometimes our plans don't work out. Where do we turn when hope is hard to come by? Running through the entirety of the Bible is a continuous message: Hope in God. God will not disappoint. The Message of Hope is a sourcebook for your soul's journey, carefully collected and curated from the Bible. Move from disappointment--both small and large--to a life anchored in Jesus. You can be confident, knowing God is with you and for you. He persevered through death to give your life--yes, your life--meaning and purpose and hope.

Christopher J. H. Wright masterfully opens our eyes to see and understand the message of Ezekiel. Ezekiel's vision of the glory of God--its departure and return--is first set within Israel's history and then in the culmination of God's promises in Christ. Embedded in the pattern of the strange, the bizarre and the wonderful is a word that still speaks to God's people today.

Jeremiah Lamentations Everyman s Bible Commentary

Jeremiah   Lamentations  Everyman s Bible Commentary

Lamentations is an appropriate companion to this book, for it looks back to the event that Jeremiah anticipated, the fall of Jerusalem, and describes in stunningly evocative language the grief that Israel experienced.

Jeremiah, previously published as a separate volume, has been combined with Lamentations to provide a carefully organized exposition that reconstructs the historical and cultural backgrounds as well as the vital message of the two Old Testament books. Jeremiah is a penetrating analysis of a significant prophetic book regarded as especially relevant to modern times. Lamentations is an appropriate companion to this book, for it looks back to the event that Jeremiah anticipated, the fall of Jerusalem, and describes in stunningly evocative language the grief that Israel experienced. Using a paragraph-by-paragraph method of analysis, Dr. Jensen explores major units of thought in these biblical books. He effectively uses charts, maps, and informative footnotes to aid the reader's understanding.
