“Take yet another scroll, and write on it all the former words that were in the

     first scroll which Jehoiakim the king of Judah has burned.”

             (Jeremiah 36:28)

Far from diminishing the Word of God, the rage of Jehoakim gave an occasion for even more oracles from God to be preserved. Indeed, God always finds a way, no matter how humble, to renew His Word. Like those seeking to quench a flame only to spread its embers and start new fires, those who strike at the Word of God to extinguish it discover that it will only burn more brightly in more places than ever before. This book has life-changing power in itself because of Who it comes from and Who it points to: the Lord God Almighty.
