25 Reviews
Our emotions are much more than just uncomfortable feelings we struggle to control. They are windows into our hearts. They are the cries of our souls. And the authors contend that our dark emotions--the ones we tend to hide--actually can reveal in a very graphic way where we are in our relationship with God.

Review: The Cry of the Soul: How Our Emotions Reveal Our Deepset Questions about God

User Review  - G Walker - Goodreads

This is a great book on the Psalms and a great book on suffering. Not definitive but definitely worth the read and for that matter even a re-read or two. Good stuff. Great supplemental book to the somewhat saner Christian responses to pain. Read full review
