New. Two rival views dominate contemporary Jeremiah scholarship. One sees the book as essentially a Deuteronomistic product, the other as stemming largely from the prophet himself. McConville enters into dialogue with both sides of the debate before setting out his own approach to reading the book of Jeremiah. He contends that the characterization of Jeremiah as Deuteronomistic obscures its individuality and vitality and retards rather than furthers the task of is elucidation. McConville provides an understanding of the theology and purpose of Jeremiah that informs other major areas of Old Testament study.
