Lamenting the Loss of Laments

Episode Summary

Today, Tom interviews Jeff Mooney, professor of Old Testament at California Baptist University. Dr. Mooney presented a paper at the Evangelical Theological Society comparing the large amount of laments found in the book of Psalms and the relative lack of laments found in Christian songs sung in churches. Why does this lack of lament matter? Jason and Tom thought this topic demanded our attention.
