The Call to Go Against the Grain & Jeremiah

Shalom, Jeremiah. You’ve always fascinated me. I’ve tried at least 3 times to read your entire book. I always find myself getting caught up in the first seven chapters that I never get to the end. Let me explain, it grabs my attention but it’s so deep. I feel like in order to really grasp…
