Federico Villanueva - What Do the Ancient Psalms Have to Say About the Value of Lament in the Modern World?
What's the problem with singing joyful songs in the face of suffering? What do the psalms teach us about staying with suffering, rather than moving too quickly to praise? How is the practice of lament witnessed to across the pages of the Bible, right up to the very end? And how is naming the reality of pain and trials actually an expression of hope?
In today’s show I will be talking to Rev Dr Federico Villanueva, who is currently a Commissioning Editor for Langham Publishing and Scholar Care Coordinator for Asian Langham Scholars. Federico is an Old Testament scholar, author, minister, preacher and seminary teacher known in particular for his works on the Psalms and Lamentations.
