The Bible is honest about suffering. For Crying Out Loud is a book of forty meditations that focus on loss and recovery. Everyone is affected by loss and relational suffering goes very deep. Some of the psalms are bold in saying how much we hurt and are hurt by other people. These meditations focus on psalms that are biblical cries of the heart. Underlying the words on every page of this book is a hope that you will be able to connect so deeply with what is said in scripture that you sense more clearly what goes on in your own heart and realize that painful experiences are felt and named by other people, some of who lived thousands of years ago. Scripture shows us that, for various reasons that are human and divine, we need to cry out to the Lord when we are in pain.
