The Fulfilment of Doom?: The Dialogic Interaction between the Book of Lamentations and the Pre-Exilic/Early Exilic Prophetic Literature
The theology of the book of Lamentations has long been a vexed question for biblical scholars. With its strong expression of grief, suffering and anger, and seemingly random images of destruction and despair juxtaposed against confessions of sin and expression of hope, the book has defied attempts to draw together a "cohesive" statement of its theological position or thrust. Conversations continue as to the nature of the theological expression within Lamentations, a conversation into which the present work enters.
