Voices of Lament
Revell, September 2022
Inspired by Psalm 37, Voices of Lament: Reflections on Brokeness and Hope in a World Longing for Justice, is a powerful collection of reflections from Christian Women of Color on themes of injustice, heartache, and deep suffering. Their essays, prayers, poems, and liturgies lay bare the experiences of the oppressed even as they draw us into deeper intimacy with God and a more fulsome understanding of each other.
For anyone who longs to better express and understand the beauty of lament held in holy tension with hope and love, this extraordinary collection presents both well-known and new voices from various ethnic and people groups and different generations, putting God's faithfulness on full and glorious display.
Ifueko Ogbomo contributes the opening poem in this book. Titled My Utmost Delight, her poem was inspired by the first Strophe of Psalm 37.
The visionary and editor of Voices of Lament is Natasha Sistrunk Robinson.
Publisher: Revell - Baker Publishing Group.
