"The process of lament is a spiritual bridge that allows each of us to encounter God in all of his fullness: holy, approachable, sentient, compassionate, and responsive to our suffering. In response to our cries for help God hears and provides a bi-level solution, one at the existential level, and one at the level of destiny." This book demonstrates that the laments of Abraham, Job, and Isaiah epitomize a faithful and spiritually healthy response to human suffering. Each lament represents the voice of an affected individual calling upon God to hear and act. Lamentation exemplifies the lamenter's faith that God will hear and respond with favorable action. One of the most significant functions of God's response to our lament is to demonstrate that he alone controls all of creation. And yet, God reveals himself to be even more than the living Sovereign God who controls the universe and all things within it. He is revealed as the sentient merciful God who seeks to establish and guide the lives of each one of us. For this reason, lament is fundamental to sustaining and deepening our relationship with God.
