Psalms for Troubled Times by Merrill Morse

Dr. Morse comments on the so-called psalms of lamentation or sad psalms as resources for the difficult days in our life journeys. While often dark and angry and dealing with themes of suffering, sorrow, sin, repentance, and anguish, the sad psalms can be intensely personal and rewarding in dealing with life's stresses and sorrows.
