In this book, Robert Laha leads a ten-session study into the stories of suffering, blame, and, ultimately, hope found in the book of Jeremiah. In an attempt to bring some clarity to this at times confusing book, Laha discusses Jeremiah's world and God's judgement; prophetic signs and false prophets; unfaithfulness and lament; and consolation and hope.
