Reflections on the Book of Lamentations

What? A second book! Yes! Very similar to The Honesty of the Psalms (my first book), this book with exegetical reflections, struggles, and the hope of Christ in the book of Lamentations will encourage the reader to engage with this neglected and painful book - all the while not only allowing the pain and darkness of the moment to be...not only finding their own pain in that space - but looking to the hope of Christ!

So we are asking for your help to get this book out there! The cost is $5,500 which pays for editing, proof-reading, copy design, conversion to ebooks, etc. I know it's a lot, and y'all have helped us with the first book - but we're asking for your help again! Also please know that we do NOT expect a lot from people to donate and that every little bit adds up and helps!

From the bottom of our hearts (both Michelle and mine), thank you for your prayers, support, encouragement, and all that other good stuff!
