Jeremiah and Homer; a Surprising contrast

Tony takes us on an intriguing literary journey in this short talk. He compares Old Testament literature to Homer and Greek literature and explains how they offer contrasting views of reality. He then turns this contrast onto Jeremiah and explains how Jeremiah offers the climax and the resolution to much of Kings and the anger of God in the histories. In all of this he uses the great literary text Mimesis by Eric Auerbach, who famously compared Homer and the Old Testament.
