The Early Career of the Prophet Jeremiah
This study continues the effort to map out an early career for Jeremiah. There exists an abundance of background material: chronological notices, historical and biographical reports, and a collection of oracles and prophetic utterances of other descriptions, as well as a wealth of relevant non-biblical texts. This book describes both the traditional and nontraditional views of Jeremiah, and then presents the view that Jeremiah's career begins not before, nor after, but at the height of the Josianic reform, that is, in 622 BC.
