Psalming the Blues: At the Intersection of Pain and Praise – By Tony Cartledge
Psalming the Blues: At the Intersection of Pain and Praise, explores seven psalms of lament — reminders that hope exists even in darkness. “Sin and suffering are an inevitable part of the human condition, but not the inevitable end of the story,” said Cartledge. “The psalmists knew that the reality of God brings the promise of hope, and they found a broad range of ways to express both personal need and spiritual hope.”
Life is full of joy, yet not all of life is joyful. The question to be faced is not whether we will experience sadness and grief but where we will turn in such times. These insightful and inspiring lessons from selected psalms build trust and hope in the promises of God that have sustained generations.
The lessons and background/teaching materials needed to teach a series (Digging Deeper, Hardest Questions, discussion ideas) are in each book.
