Theologian Todd Billings new book on lament stems from his personal struggle with cancer, but explores it theologically.  In this episode, we talk with him about the nature and meaning of lament and why our culture may not leave much room for it.

See Derek’s review of Rejoicing in Lament here.  But more importantly, get the book.
