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.
