Reading Guide

To understand the book of Jeremiah, it is probably best first to skim the whole book. Locate the large divisions listed above and get a sense of the book's many voices and kinds of literature. Then it will be helpful to return to the first chapter, Jeremiah's call, and think of it as an introduction to the book's major themes. It is important to recall that the book is not chronologically arranged. Time does not move in a straight line. Events in the past, promises about the future, and appeals to the reader in the present are braided together. Memories about the past shape the present and remain alive in it, just as future hope changes perceptions of the present. This overlapping of time is particularly true for survivors of trauma and loss. The present and the past weave together, and hopeful anticipation for the future can burst in without preparation upon the present.
