The Silence of Abraham, The Passion of Job: Explorations in the Theology of Lament: 2016 J.J. Thiessen Lecture Series

These lectures will explore what sort of prayer is appropriate in situations of difficulty and suffering. In contrast to simply bearing suffering in silence (which is the default spirituality of many), the Bible suggests that God desires vigorous dialogue partners, who will wrestle with God, baring their heart and soul, as they seek redress. The lectures will begin with lament prayer in the Psalms, then address the counter-example of Abraham’s silence in Genesis 22, and conclude with the book of Job as a possible response to Abraham's silence.
