Book Review: Hurting With God

Throughout our lives, we often wonder why things happen, why we have to go through certain seasons.  Many authors focus on the whys, but Glenn Pemberton does something a bit different.

In his book, Hurting with God: Learning to Lament with the Psalms, Pemberton wants to demonstrate how we live and relate to God during life's less than ideal circumstances.  He does this by showing that the Psalms do not cover up or deny the hardships of life.  Throughout the book, the author defines lament, explores the connection between the Psalm and Protestant Hymnals, and uses the Psalms to support the fact that people of faith can and should lament.

This book is ideal for those who want to be able to help others (or themselves) live through the storms in life.  It is a great reference to using the Psalms when believers struggle.

I received a free copy of this book from Abilene Christian University Press for the purpose of an honest review.
