Jeremiah 48 as Christian Scripture
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Dr. Woods shows the modern reader of the Bible how apparently difficult and obscure parts of Scripture can convey messages of vital theological importance to our own times. While she unfolds and interprets the prophecies of Jeremiah 48 concerning ancient Moab, the reader is impressed by the prophet's insights and theological perceptions, and their continuing importance for Christian life in a hostile and uncomprehending environment."
"Julie Woods has taken a messy and unpleasant text to pursue the interaction of careful critical work and a larger theological perspective in reading Scripture. The path is not an easy walk, substantively and theologically, but the result is well worth it. Not every academic book--and this is surely an academic book--reaches its climax in a non-academic but powerful and imaginative conclusion. Don't stop reading before you get to the codas. It is still Jeremiah 48, but in a brilliant, larger picture, literally."

"...this book can be highly recommended for the academic wishing to understand how to more fully apply Jeremiah 48 to Christian living."
