About Jeremiah 1-25 (Volume 26):
This volume of the Word Biblical Commentary series is a fitting tribute to the renowned Bible scholar Dr. Peter Cragie. At the time of his death Dr. Cragie had completed his analysis of the Book of Jeremiah through the third verse of Chapter 8. His colleagues picked up his pen and, having divided the task among themselves, completed the manuscript, following the same format Dr. Cragie had established in the early chapters. The result is a unique commentary, a volume launched by the distinct and well-informed perspective of Dr. Cragie’s scholarship, but at the same time a volume enriched by the combined insights of other experts in this genre of biblical writing. Dr. Page Kelley penned the critical commentary from 8:4 through Chapter 16, and then passed the baton to Dr. Joel Drinkard, who carried the work through Chapter 25. Dr. Gerald Keown provided and updated and expanded bibliography. Dr. Gerald Morris added a list of ancient commentaries. Dr. Thomas Smothers contributed the essay, “The Historical Background of Jeremiah.”

About Jeremiah 26-52 (Volume 27):
Few books of the Old Testament have attracted more scholarly attention in recent decades than the prophetic writings of Jeremiah. In this concluding volume, the authors help you understand the power of Jeremiah’s book by revealing the chaos of his world. In a time of radical change, Jeremiah saw beyond the immediate historical events and sought to convey the long-term change that was occurring in both the history of the kingdom of God and God’s ultimate plan for the world.
