Jeremiah was one of the ancient Hebrew prophets who spoke daringly about the injustices and anomalies of his day in such a straightforward manner that he had to pay a heavy price of risking his own life unto death. In many ways, he represented a suffering prophet with full of pathos in his life situation because of his uncompromising words towards justice and peace for his nation. As a Yahwistic prophet, Jeremiah didn't spare anyone who violated the rights of the poor and oppressed.The case of Jeremiah fits well with the Dalits liberation struggle in India, as the latter ventures into a dialogue with the biblical text in a manner that will release sufficient potential for their liberation. The pathos of Jeremiah also goes with the pathos of Dalits as they face different challenges to thwart the wicked schemes of their oppressors. Just like Jeremiah, Dalits are fighting against the institutional anomalies of injustice and corruption that works against the covenantal demands of the God of justice and equality. In this light, Jeremiah's concerns are very appropriate for Dalits to dialogue with the biblical text so that there will be a mutual benefit for both the dialogue partners.Therefore, the book present messages of Jeremiah, relevant for Dalits in their present predicament. They can look into the inner dynamism with which Jeremiah preached the message of God to the rebellious society then in a very crucial and critical context. This eye opener is also meant for Christian Laity, Church Clergies, Students and Researchers, alike.Printed Pages: 487.
