The "difficult psalms" which amount to more than a third of the Psalter, shock us with their cries of pain, anger, and alienation. They call on God for help in moving from suffering and grief to trust and mercy. Lyn Fraser, following the lead of Old Testament theologian Walter Brueggemann, shows how to integrate these "psalms of disorientation" in Sunday morning worship, pastoral care, and any situation of extreme need.


Lyn Fraser is the author of Water from the Rock, Finding Grace in Time of Grief. A volunteer hospice chaplain, she facilitates bereavement support groups, teaches creative writing to incarcerated youth, and has helped teen volunteers assist hospice patients record their life stories. Lyn has led workshops and retreats for religious, hospice, and academic groups.
