At the age of thirty-nine, Christian theologian Todd Billings was diagnosed with a rare form of incurable cancer. In the wake of that diagnosis, he began grappling with the hard theological questions we face in the midst of crisis: Why me? Why now? Where is God in all of this? This eloquently written book shares Billings's journey, struggle, and reflections on providence, lament, and life in Christ in light of his illness, moving beyond pat answers toward hope in God's promises. Theologically robust yet eminently practical, it engages the open questions, areas of mystery, and times of disorientation in the Christian life. Billings offers concrete examples through autobiography, cultural commentary, and stories from others, showing how our human stories of joy and grief can be incorporated into the larger biblical story of God's saving work in Christ.

The recent call to refocus on word and sacrament in church liturgy is explored in these musings about how parish ministers, choir directors, and lay leaders can return to basics in their Sunday services without changing the long-time programs valued by their congregations. The worry that that skillful public speaking and trained musicians may become "entertainment" for a passive audience is discussed, as is the challenge of finding a balanced approach to the "relevance" problem—the result of ministers focusing their sermons on modern social dilemmas at the expense of the more authentic church service of established liturgy and biblical interpretation.

Praise and lament are two major approaches to praying to God. In this book, Claus Westermann investigates these primary categories of the Psalms and shows their meaning for prayer and worship. He contrasts the Old Testament Psalms with those of Babylon and Egypt indicating their distinctive characteristics. Sensitively written and carefully reasoned, Westermann's book will be valued for the clear-cut way it brings light to the character of the ancient Psalms of Israel.
