Contents:
The phenomenology of lament and the presence of God in time / Rebekka A. Klein -- Enquiring into the absence of lament : a study of the entwining of suffering and guilt in lament / Jonas Bauer -- God, lament, contingency : an essay in fundamental theology / Christian Polke -- Lament for naught? An inquiry into the suppression of lament in systematic theology : on the example of Karl Barth / Matthias D. W�uthrich -- Lamentation between contradiction and obedience : Hegel and Barth as diametrically opposed brothers in the spirit of modernity / Martin Wendte -- The fractured unity of God : lament as a challenge to the very nature of God / Marius Timmann Mjaaland -- Trust and lament : faith in the face of godforsakenness / Claudia Welz -- Praise, petition, lament-- and back : on the significance of lament in the Book of Tobit / Henrike Frey-Anthes -- To mourn, weep, lament and groan : on the heterogeneity of the New Testament's statements on lament / Markus �Ohler -- 'Have you any right to be angry?' Lament as a metric of socio-political and theological context / Stephen Lakkis -- Augustine's incitement to lament, from the Enarrationes in Psalmos / Brian Brock -- Crucified praise and resurrected lament / Eva Harasta.
Summary: In prayer all experiences may be brought to God in openness and trust. Yet lament seems to introduce notes of mistrust into a relationship properly characterized by confident faith in God and His will. Sustained attention to lament presents a challenge to theological reflection in reminding it of the acuteness of the experience of suffering and evil. This volume suggests that a robust concept and practice of lament is an appropriate response to questions of evil and suffering in its refusal to close off questions that cannot and should not be closed. Lament takes place in the eye of the storm.
