~ Ifueko Ogbomo 'Lady InspiroLogos'

“So often, women of color are the ones who answer God's call to lead our communities and teach the coming generations what it means to walk closely with God, while working for justice, even in the darkest of times. Voices of Lament is a new book, a powerful collaboration from 29 Women of Color from a broad spectrum of racial, ethnic groups, generations, locations, and experiences. Through our reflections on Psalm 37, we take its themes of justice and lament, revealing God’s faithfulness in our own lives and our communities throughout generations. We invite you to join us for the Baker Book House launch of Voices of Lament. Join us to grow in empathy and understanding as we draw into deeper intimacy with God and experience the holy tension of lament and hope.”–– Natasha Sistrunk Robinson, editor
