    Jeremiah was an eye-witness of the fall of the kingdom of Judah to the Babylonians, a process which extended from 598 to 586 B.C. During his forty-year-long ministry he chronicled major world events. But more importantly, he cried repentance to a nation which was wallowing in corruption. From his writings we learn important lessons about how God deals with man and what is expected of us here on earth. Jeremiah also made sweeping prophecies of last-days events, and we learn much of what is yet future from his writings. Jeremiah is believed to be the author of the book of Lamentations, which is also covered in this valuable book.
