Kathleen O’Connor shows great perception in her interpretation of this troublesome book, and before engaging the text, she discloses her reading context from the outset, stating I believe it is immoral to interpret texts for lives of people other than one’s own,. My reflective efforts begin from an ongoing ‘hermeneutics of suspicion,’ a doubting and questioning distrust of the text (xv). In such times Laments are acts of fidelity.

Kathleen does an excellent job of analysis and translation with what quite possibly is the most in depth and insightful look in Lamentations. Lamentations is an often overlooked OT book but it is so rich in how to deal with grief, pain and suffering. Kathleen did a wonderful job bringing all the richness of this book out and available to today's readers. I have a whole new outlook on Lamentations!

My first look into Lamentations. Helped me see the big picture of this short book. Well written, concise and to the point. O'Connor also makes some great present day interpretations and comparisons, that really brings Lamentations to life.

As a student of Bible, I found this book to be a useful addition to my library. Lamentations is an often-overlooked book and this book helps to unpack the text.

I like the history, the present and future relevancy aspect depicted in the bible relating to the singing and having the blues addressed in the book of Lamentations.
Dr. O'Connor's book on Lamentations is a true delight for those who want to read a reasoned, thoughtful, scholarly, yet assessible interpretation of one of the most difficult, yet beautiful books of the Hebrew bible. It is biblical scholarship at its finest for those of us who want to turn to the bible not to use it to hurt and polarize but to use it to find understanding and, yes, comfort in the pain of our personal and community lives. Lamentations gives us more questions than answers and it maddenly "doesn't make everything better" in the final verses of the fifth chapter. Instead it gives us, as Dr. O'Connor points out, a beautiful, very intelligent design on the suffering and hopelessness of the human condition. Even though the narrator, Woman of Zion, the strongman, and the people cried out on the destruction of their city in the 8th century BCE we can empathize and learn from their pain. Dr. O'Connor has given us a gift to reexamine this text and food for thought as we look at the pain and suffering in our contemporary world where God seems silent and work as a community to provide comfort.
