In the book of Lamentations, Israel comes to grips with the destruction of Jerusalem and the beginning of exile. Despite wrenching pain and disorientation, there is ultimate hope in God’s faithfulness. In the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary: Lamentations, Abner Chou examines the text to see what it meant in its original context and what it means now. With a new translation, verse-by-verse notes, biblical-theology comments, and devotional insights for each section, this new commentary is invaluable for any student or pastor who wants to study Lamentations and apply it today.
Chou is assistant professor of biblical studies at The Master’s College and Seminary. He’s the author of I Saw the Lord: A Biblical Theology of Vision, and has presented papers at the Evangelical Theological Society. He also is a contributor to the Lexham Bible Dictionary.
