Preface

This volume has had its origin in an article which I contributed some years ago to The Princeton Theological Review, and which – with considerable additions here and there, and especially in its closing section – forms the Introduction to the present work. In the paragraphs which make up this Preface, I trust that the frequent occurrence of the pronoun “I” may not be set down to mere egotism, but that the reader in his charity may regard the direct form of speech as more or less inevitable in the expression of what is a kind of personal testimony.

Before the time when the task referred to was undertaken, I acknowledge frankly that the Book of Jeremiah had made no special appeal to me. I can at least understand the confession of Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch in his work On the Art of Reading, when, in the notable passage in which he commends the duty of reading the Bible, he declares that he found Jeremiah ‘ the contributor least to his mind,’ the reason assigned for this distaste being that he was “not constitutionally disposed to lamentation.” [Continue reading]
