Publisher's Summary

An excerpt from the foreword by Joni Eareckson Tada: "You have stumbled upon the best of guides. I should know. I first read The Cry of the Soul decades ago when I was still sorting through a lot of hurt and frustration connected with my quadriplegia (yes, I read it on that music stand holding a mouth stick). The Cry of the Soul showed me what to do with my anger and hurt - not stuff it under the carpet of my conscience, or minimize it, but actually do something good with it."

All emotion - whether positive or negative - can give us a glimpse of the true nature of God. We want to control our negative emotions and dark desires. God wants us to recognize them as the cry of our soul to be made right with Him. Beginning with the Psalms, Cry of the Soul explores what Scripture says about our darker emotions and points us to ways of honoring God as we faithfully embrace the full range of our emotional life.

Challenging and insightful.

Why am I such a coward? Why can't I stop being angry? Why can't I just let things go? Being able to see my unrighteous anger and misplaced fear as the deep-rooted heart problems of sin they really are has been incredibly eye-opening. The book points out that we often try to suppress and "wave off" our feelings when we know they are wrong, but God searches the heart. He already knows. Confessing my honest feelings to God like the psalmist did is such a horrifying thought, but surely He already knows and is faithful to forgive. I couldn't stop listening to this book and will listen to it again.

Insightful

A very intriguing view of human emotions and how they both reflect the nature of God and draw us to God.

Outstanding.

I have been privileged to read a few of Dr. Allender’s books and will always be profoundly grateful for his ministry. I listened to this as an accompaniment to my current study through the Psalms (among others, Longman’s excellent updated Tyndale/IVP commentary on Psalms: outstanding for its faithful brevity). The Cry of the Soul is exactly what the title says, but no doubt because God has provided us such a rich deposit in the Psalms of the brutal and commensurately celebratory depth of post-lapsarian/pre-resurrection life. Allender and Longman do a beautiful job navigating God’s Word. Highly recommended.
