Rabbi Mordecai Schreiber has published a new book, The Man who Knew God: Decoding Jeremiah.

Below is an introduction to the book:

The Man who Knew God decodes the complexities of the book of Jeremiah and argues that this prophet is the key figure in shaping Western civilization. Author Mordecai Schreiber posits that Jeremiah is not only the one who eradicated paganism amongst the Hebrew people, but he can also be considered the founder of the post-biblical Jewish faith and the one who served as a spiritual model for Jesus of Nazareth. Offering intriguing insights into Jeremiah’s role in the founding of Western monotheism and the eradication of paganism amongst the Hebrew people, this book should be read by all those interested in Biblical studies and religion.
