Publisher's Description

Most of us will have faced that most delicate situation of meeting a person who is suffering. We tend to go down one of two different avenues. One is to offer well-intentioned advice - often in the form of well-worn cliches that the person will have heard several times before. The other is not to say anything at all - risking the danger of leaving the person under the impression that God has no idea what is going on and is unable to help.

How are we to understand suffering and its place in our lives? Should we try and rationalise it away, trying to come up with a solution that sits as comfortably as possible? Surely we should look to Scripture first? This is what Walter Kaiser does here. Looking at the Old Testament book of Lamentations Kaiser does not offer any easy solutions - but rather shows us how a Sovereign and Loving God can work through even the most painful moments.

"In the book of Lamentations, more than perhaps anywhere else except for its individualistic expression in the book of Job, we are led into an experience of suffering and communal pain on a scale seldom endured by many individuals or nations. All too frequently the subject of suffering is avoided, or the realities of human pathos and divine involvement are minimized. Lamentations will not yield to any of these cheap 'cures'. Instead of panaceas, it will direct us to the faithfulness and gracious character of God." Walter C. Kaiser, Jr.

    An outstanding answer to one of the most hard question we all ask in difficult unanswered situations we may face in life why our loving Lord allow us, individuals and nations to suffer?Whilst the book provides an overview of the book of Lamentations, it explains an important element of Gods plan to our spiritual growth, grief, pain and suffering.I read the book twice and hope to read it again.

    This is a great book. Dr Kaiser provides an overview of Lamentations, chapter by chapter, which includes an outline that may be used for bible study or preaching. The highlights of each chapter are discussed and focus upon God's love and concern his people through the grief and pain of life. This book is not only for those who are suffering but for the believer who wishes to understand how God feels about our pain and how in all circumstances we are to cling to his loving kindness and mercy. This book will fortify you for the trials of life that may be ahead of us.Chris (Australia).
