The destruction of Jerusalem is the likely setting for the book of Lamentations, delivered from a place of unspeakable pain in poetry of astonishing beauty and intricacy. In this Bible Speaks Today volume, Christopher Wright shows that we must not, and cannot, isolate Lamentations from the rest of the Bible.
A homiletic commentary on the book of Lamentations Intr and notes by D G Watt and homiletics by G Barlow
"I've pitched my tent in the land of hope." Acts 2:26 There's no emotion quite so vulnerable as hope. We pin it to our wildest plans, and as we know all too well, sometimes our plans don't work out. Where do we turn when hope is hard to come by? Running through the entirety of the Bible is a continuous message: Hope in God. God will not disappoint. The Message of Hope is a sourcebook for your soul's journey, carefully collected and curated from the Bible. Move from disappointment--both small and large--to a life anchored in Jesus. You can be confident, knowing God is with you and for you. He persevered through death to give your life--yes, your life--meaning and purpose and hope.
Christopher J. H. Wright masterfully opens our eyes to see and understand the message of Ezekiel. Ezekiel's vision of the glory of God--its departure and return--is first set within Israel's history and then in the culmination of God's promises in Christ. Embedded in the pattern of the strange, the bizarre and the wonderful is a word that still speaks to God's people today.
