It is regrettable that a prophet of the stature of Jeremiah who has so much to say to our generation is virtually unknown among our people and not too familiar among our pastors. Here was a man who, as his name indicates, was "hurled into the life of his nation” (Baughman), in much the same way as Christians today are brought face to face with the problems of their country and community. This was a man who was ''born to be at odds with and in opposition to the whole world" (Welch), just as the modem disciple of Christ finds himself in conflict with the world.
