Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to depict a vivid picture of the works of scripture. Somewhere between a sermon and a college lecture, he delivers these audiobooks with authority but a pleasantly friendly voice and a touch of fun, using contemporary references.
Continuing where he left off with The Book of Jeremiah, Dr. Creasy talks about Lamentations, also attributed to Jeremiah, the reluctant prophet. Jeremiah was in Jerusalem during the Babylonians siege of the city and Lamentations gives an eye-witness account of that siege which is painted in vivid, updated language in this audiobook.
Jeremiah serves as a prophet from the 13th year of king Josiah through the fall of Jerusalem, 626-586 B.C. Jeremiah is eyewitness to the Babylonian attacks on Jerusalem in 605 and 597, and he is in Jerusalem during the two-year Babylonian siege of the city, 588-586 B.C. Lamentations is Jeremiah’s eyewitness account of the terrible suffering of a people who watch priest and prophet killed in the temple and are driven in desperation to “eat their own children”. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as he explores the five acrostic poems that compose the book of Lamentations.

This is what I love about Dr. Bill Creasy's teaching: he shows us the humanity of the person behind the writing in a very compelling way. I will never look at the Bible historical account in the same way again.
