A Nation in Crisis: How the Prophecy of Jeremiah Speaks to Our Culture
No system of philosophy, psychology, or education will ever eliminate the wrongful, evil failing of the human heart. It cannot be done. Only God can redeem our depraved nature.
In this time of violence, wickedness, and selfishness, it appears that our nation is decaying beyond help. And there is a tragedy when we forsake God and elevate ourselves. But God has something to say to us, just as He did to Jeremiah when faced with similar circumstances, several centuries before Christ.
Remember. Realize. Return. Beware. These four words summarize God's message through His prophet, Jeremiah, who tried to once again point Judah to the right path. The nation was slowly falling apart, losing its strength and denying the living God. Ray Stedman takes you step-by-step through key passages in the book of Jeremiah, showing how the prophet faithfully followed God and called the people to repentance. For us today, Jeremiah stands as an example—that having faith in the living God can set us free in the midst of a decaying society.
Ray Stedman was a beloved pastor and trusted author whose gentle but straightforward style pinpointed the issues and delivered godly answers. His manuscript was timely when first published in the 1970s, and now, updated by Jim Denney, still relevant today.
