C. L. Crouch provides a clear and concise introduction to the complex text of Jeremiah. Readers are introduced to the diverse approaches to the book, with attention paid to the way that these approaches differ from but also relate to one another. After a brief introduction, Crouch addresses the formation of the book, especially in relation to its Hebrew and Greek versions; the theological interests of the book and the challenges posed by attempts to link these to an actual man 'Jeremiah'; and the relationship of Jeremiah to other biblical prophets. Crouch focuses clearly on method and on approaches to the text, as is the mark of this series. This makes the book especially useful for students in the quest to navigate the diverse body of scholarly literature that surrounds this troublesome biblical book.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book has strong academic credentials, but is accessible and well written. Crouch takes the reader through the minefield of modern criticism and interpretative techniques in a thoughtful style. * The Reader *
This introduction to the book of Jeremiah provides an impressive balance of comprehensive discussion regarding critical issues in the study of the text and a detailed consideration of key passages. With characteristic sophistication and clarity, Crouch provides important insights into this intriguing and complex prophetic book, and has produced a valuable reference work for students and researchers alike. * Mark A. Leuchter, Temple University, USA *
This slim but substantial volume will be greeted with joy in the classroom. A sure guide through tangled hermeneutical thickets, Crouch offers lucid descriptions of Jeremiah material, reliable mappings of methodological terrain, and refreshing candor about difficult issues. Novices and advanced students alike will benefit from following where Crouch leads. * Carolyn J. Sharp, Yale Divinity School, USA *
The book of Jeremiah stands as one of the most challenging texts in the Hebrew Bible for both its content and for the the perennial questions about what text actually constitutes the `book'. Here, C. L. Crouch offers not only a valuable survey that frames these issues and numerous others that one needs to understand in order to profitably engage with Jeremiah, she provides insight into how to tackle those issues. From the potential cacophony of scholarly proclamations Crouch orchestrates a symphony of views that enables the reader to gain a deeper appreciation of this challenging prophetic book. Filled with lucid insights and marked by clarity of expression, Crouch offers far more than a mere introduction to the study of Jeremiah. Her book will be a valuable resource in the classroom and a contribution to scholarship in equal measures. * C. A. Strine, Lecturer in Ancient Near Eastern History and Literature, University of Sheffield, UK *
