Psalms of Lament Mar 15, 2007
When my son was killed in an auto/pedestrian accident two years ago, I read books that were given to me, books that were recommended by therapists, and books that I randomly bought in search of any source of solace. Ann Weem's "Psalms of Lament" spoke the words my heart has been crying. Especially Lament Psalm Forty-Nine. Like Ann and Rachel, I will never be comforted; until God wipes the tears from my eyes.
Beautiful, heartfelt words Nov 10, 2006
Anne Weems pours out her heart and reaches the sadness and overwhelming grief that many feel. I ordered this book for a friend who lost both of her children in an automobile accident.
Best Book Aug 22, 2006
This is one of the best books that I have ever purchased. I have used it time and again for many devotional times in churches and Christian educational events.
Psalm of lament Dec 17, 1999
This book is terrific for anyone stuggling with the tragides of life, espechally sudden death or serious or chronic illness. It is plea to God for help, understanding and solice for those burdened by the unfairness that is life. It has been a source of comfort to read these each night. Sad as they, are they are cathartic
of great benefit to grieving parents Dec 1, 1999
all i can tell you of this book is my mother credits a large percentage of her still being on this planet after the death of her 16 year old daughter in a car accident to the insights in this book of poetry--it is a series of poems about the loss of her son, mostly written as appeals to god, and it certainly brings the reader face to face with their anger and sadness, so they can move on and face the future with a little less hopelessness.
