Lamentations is not familiar territory for many Christians, yet it deals searchingly with abiding themes such as the spiritual glory of the church and the tragedy when this is lost. It is a book that speaks directly to the confused Christianity and evangelicalism of our day.

Richard Brooks' warm and pastoral exposition applies the great theme of God's just dealing with a backsliding Judah to contemporary Christianity and reminds members of the church of Christ to examine themselves and take encouragement: "Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."
