You are warmly invited to a public lecture on Wednesday 8 August by Dr Tremper Longman III at our Henderson campus.
Over the past two decades, some Christian leaders have rightly tried to recover lament for Christian personal and community expression. The lament psalms in particular have been helpful in giving Christians permission to express disappointment, anger, depression, and grief in an authentic and bold way to God. This lament differs from complaint like we observe among the Israelites in the wilderness. However, the focus on lament has obscured the fact that God wants us to ultimately move from lament to confidence in the midst of struggle. The picture of suffering in Job gives us the same dynamic as Job moves from lament to silence and confidence in the face of God. Jesus also models this “silent suffering” in the Garden of Gethsemane.
