SPEAKER FOR THE GOD
The world of Yirmeyahu—known to the later English-speaking world as Jeremiah—is crashing down around him. The tiny kingdom of Yehudah, the last remnant of the people of Yisra’el, lies caught between superpowers, Egypt and the new, and aggressive, empire of Babylon. Yirmeyahu, a speaker for the war god Yahweh, warns his uncaring people of threatening catastrophe, throwing himself into a maelstrom of political intrigue, as kings strive desperately to play one power against the other. And his own life is no happier than his nation’s: he has been haunted from his earliest youth by visions of a goddess whose surpassing beauty makes any merely human woman pall in comparison. She blocks his path whenever he seeks another lover. As Yehudah girds itself for its final, fatal battle against empire, Yirmeyahu goes to war with the goddess, until, in exile, a new series of devastating revelations leads him towards reconciliation with the god, the goddess, his people, and himself.
