Yet this book also provides comfort for those who seek the Lord in the depths of their affliction. The darkest periods in the history of God's people have been and always will be followed by the fulfillment of His great and precious promises.
"Lamentations is a powerful expression of exilic Judah's pain as a consequence of the judgment God brought on them for their sin. Evan and Marie Blackmore have provided us with a substantial and insightful commentary that not only informs us about the book's ancient meaning but also demonstrates its continuing relevance for today. I recommend this commentary for everyone who studies Lamentations, but particularly for clergy as they preach this important book of the Bible to their modern congregations."
