Description: The Da'ath Sofrim, here translated into English, is a lucid and outstanding commentary on the the Book of Jeremiah.
From the publisher:
Although all recorded prophecy bears a message for posterity, each prophet conveyed a specific message for his times. Thus, Jeremiah's prophecy is connected to his generation more that the prophecies of any other prophet. His words also convey his deep personal pain. Jeremiah lived in the generation of the Destruction of the First Temple and the Exile of the remaining tribes of Israel in the Kingdom of Judah. The vast majority of the Jewish People (the Ten Tribes) had already gone into exile with the destruction of the Northern Kingdom of Israel. During most of Jeremiah's times there was a righteous king over Judah - Josiah son of Amon. King Josiah had made great effort to strengthen Jewish practice, but his success was only superficial. G-d sent Jeremiah to bring Josiah's attention to these deeper spiritual shortcomings, so that perhaps this might preclude the final destruction of the kingdom.
