How do believers live out faith in prolonged seasons of pain and loss? How can we live with God when it hurts--and continues to hurt? Drawing from his own daily struggle with chronic pain and years of reading and teaching the Psalms, Pemberton leads readers on a quest to recover a lost ancient resource for people of faith--the language of lament. This rich volume calls attention to the loss of lament in churches, what this loss is costing us, and what might happen if we spoke and prayed the full spectrum of biblical faith languages. Hurting with God makes a persuasive case for restoring the biblical language of lament in the church and in the lives of believers.

From the Inside Flap:

Many writers have considered the question, "Why do bad things happen to good people?" Pemberton, however, sets this philosophical issue aside to consider the practical. How do believers live out faith in prolonged seasons of pain and loss?

How can we live with God when it hurts and continues to hurt? Drawing from his own daily struggle with chronic pain and years of reading and teaching the Psalms, Pemberton leads readers on a quest to recover a lost ancient resource

for people of faith the language of lament. The book of Psalms brings out the reality and presence of lament in ancient days, indeed laments make up a third of the Psalter. Through the exploration and study of imagery and language,

Pemberton revitalizes this forgotten tool to rejuvenate those who seek to connect with God in times of struggle.
