* Our self-help culture tells us that it's best to mask our misery. But does denial blind us to the gospel's goodness? In this 5-week study, Brueggemann and Frost explore the Psalms as scripts for lament---and encourages us to express our woundedness so we can experience the fullness of our humanity that lies beyond pain. 112 pages, softcover from House Studio.

We all live in a constant state of denial.Culture tells us all problems are solvable, or at least manageable; we simply need to try (or buy) the right solution. Our self-help, pop-a-pill culture is prone to masking symptoms and calling that mask a cure.But as long as we deny our pain, we lose the danger of the Gospel-the part where we give up control and allow God's mystery to unfold in our lives-and in doing so, we lose the depth of its goodness.In Psalmist s Cry, Walter Brueggemann explores Psalms as scripts for lament-guides for how to express feelings honestly, in ways normally not permitted or expected within Christian community. In this 5-week study, discover the fullness of God when we allow our lives to become about him healing us and not about us controlling or managing our way through life.
