Preaching on an obscure, depressing Old Testament book was probably not the most seeker-sensitive way to launch a church. But it shaped their community with a radically countercultural perspective.The American church avoids lament. But lament is a missing, essential component of Christian faith.

Lament recognizes struggles and suffering, that the world is not as it ought to be. Lament challenges the status quo and cries out for justice against existing injustices.Soong-Chan Rahs prophetic exposition of the book of Lamentations provides a biblical and theological lens for examining the churchs relationship with a suffering world.

It critiques our success-centered triumphalism and calls us to repent of our hubris. And it opens up new ways to encounter the other. Hear the prophets lament as the necessary corrective for Christianitys future.A Resonate exposition of the book of Lamentations.
