NICHOLSON, E. W.,
The Book of the Prophet Jeremiah, Chapters 26-52.
Cambridge University Press, 1975. 260p. Paperback. Series: Cambridge Bible Commentaries on the Old Testament. The first volume of Dr Nicholson's commentary on Jeremiah, dealing with chapters 1–25, was published in 1973. In this second volume, continuing from chapter 26 onwards, Dr Nicholson again introduces the text with a survey of the historical background to the life and ministry of the prophet during the last decades of the Kingdom of Judah, and discusses the composition of the book, giving an outline of its dominant religious ideas. The main body of the volume, in the integrated style now established for this series, contains the New English Bible translation of the text, divided into brief sections, alternating with sections of commentary. The results of recent Old Testament scholarship and modern theological thought are conveyed in simple language to the student and layman. (Publisher's information).
