Care of persons, care of world: Discovering the prophetic in ministry to suffering persons
Form-critically I accept the possibility raised by Otto Eissfeldt that Jer represents Jeremiah's ironic counter-liturgy to whatever public liturgy was offered in the crisis of the drought. I shall return to this possibility below. It would not be useful here to survey the total range of scholarly views on the setting or settings of the book of Habakkuk; a convenient view of this range may be found in Marvin Sweeney's treatment of the book in the Anchor Bible Dictionary.
