    PDF ✓ BOOK Prophetic Lament ↠ SRLLTD Prophetic LamentA very good book but don't read it like I did Read it with people in a small group The weakness of this book is that it calls to action but it necessitates a community response and as an individual you can feel a little powerless Still excellent work and especially for Christians who are just starting to venture into the waters of engaging in racial reconciliation to mend our broken world

    PDF ✓ BOOK Prophetic Lament ↠ SRLLTD Prophetic LamentI've been looking forward to this for a while both because I loved The Next Evangelicalism Freeing the Church from Western Cultural Captivity and because of a deep interest in the subject at hand and while I did enjoy it it wasn't necessarily what I had hoped I think my expectations had been a general exploration of the practice of lament and the theology behind it as well as the implications that it has and the role it serves within propheticjustice work While that is

    PDF ✓ BOOK Prophetic Lament ↠ SRLLTD Prophetic LamentThis book comes highly recommended from my Asian American friends and after reading it I can see why The book gives us an exposition of Lamentations and in the process gives us a thought provoking criticism of the Western church and our triumphalismThe book switches between an exposition of Lamentations and modern day applications The exegesis of Lamentations is well researched and helps the reader understand the text of scripture well It is not trying to be a verse by verse commentary and it succeeds in exegeting the text by looking at larger chunks By doing this kind of exegesis it allows for Soong Chan Rah to grasp well the bigger picture themes within each chapter This format also allows for him to bring his interpretation to modern applicationThe modern application consists of highlighting the Western captivity of the church something covered in depth in Rah's previous book The
