Episode 52: Practicing Jesus-Shaped Lament w/ Rebekah Eklund

Most of us are familiar with the book of Lamentations and the many Psalms of lament, but what role does lament play in the New Testament?

Rebekah Eklund, Associate Professor of Theology at Loyola University Maryland and author of Jesus Wept and Practicing Lament, joins us to explore the significant role of lament in Jesus’ life. In the time between the resurrection and the eschaton, Christians are still called to lament – to cry out to God to come and make all things new.
