Publisher's Summary

Lament is how you live between the poles of a hard life and trusting God's goodness.  

Lament is how we bring our sorrow to God - but it is a neglected dimension of the Christian life for many Christians today. We need to recover the practice of honest spiritual struggle that gives us permission to vocalize our pain and wrestle with our sorrow. Lament avoids trite answers and quick solutions, progressively moving us toward deeper worship and trust.  

Exploring how the Bible - through the psalms of lament and the book of Lamentations - gives voice to our pain, this book invites us to grieve, struggle, and tap into the rich reservoir of grace and mercy God offers in the darkest moments of our lives.

A need message for today’s Christians in America

This is a great and rare topic in our “everything is fine”, “just grin and bear it” culture. I was introduced to this book/author because of an article that the author posted on desiringgod.com and am very pleased to go through the full book to better understand the concepts. Highly recommend to anyone (Christian or non-Christian) who is dealing with spiritual, emotional, or physical pain.

So thankful for this book. I have been going through a very painful loss and fell asleep listening to this book (in a good way) the first night when I was finding it so difficult to sleep for grief.
