A Liturgy of Grief

A Liturgy of Grief

A Pastoral Commentary on Lamentations.
In Lamentations, we read of the unbearable grief experienced by a group of
believers. Leslie Allen suggests the book can be read as the script of a
liturgy performed to help the people of God come to terms with the fall of
Jerusalem and the national catastrophe it entailed. It reveals God's sometimes
hidden support for those who grieve and for their caregivers. In this unique commentary on Lamentations, respected Old Testament scholar and
volunteer hospital chaplain Leslie Allen appropriates this oft-neglected book
of the Bible to deal with a universal issue. Incorporating stories of pastoral
encounters with hospital patients, Allen integrates Scripture and pastoral care
to present a biblical model for helping those coping with grief. The book
includes a foreword by Nicholas Wolterstorff.
At one and the same time an important contribution to our understanding of " and
dealing with grief and an important contribution to our understanding of one of
the supreme pieces of literature in the OT. Take and savor! - from the " foreword by Nicholas Wolterstorff
