Seeking God in the Wake of Sin's Consequences
Counseling from a systematic exposition of the book of Lamentations
Sin does not deliver on its promises. Rather, it brings only pain and misery with its rebellion. Sin’s pleasure is only for a moment, but its painful consequences may last a lifetime. So where do we turn when we have fallen for the deceptive power of sin and are left reeling in the wake of the havoc it causes?
In The Discipline of Mercy, pastors and counselors Eric Kress and Paul Tautges take us deep into the book of Lamentations where we are exhorted to place our hope fully in the faithful mercy and loyal love of a gracious God—no matter the extent of our suffering. God alone is sovereign and rules forever––and He will use even the grievous effects of sin to accomplish His purposes. God loves His own too much not to discipline us, and yet He is faithful to suffer alongside us, cleansing us, healing us, and grieving with us as He crafts us into useful vessels for His glory. The corrective and purifying discipline of God is one of the most significant demonstrations of His unfailing mercy, perhaps overshadowed only by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
“Authors Kress and Tautges have brought this small prophecy to life for us, pulling it out of the shadows of neglect and drawing us irresistibly to its timeles lessons.”
—Irv Busenitz, Vice-President, The Master's Seminary
“A wonderful exposition of the often neglected book of Lamentations. I heartily recommend this book for the body of Christ that needs to be prepared for the suffering that may come our way, or that may come in the lives of those we reach out to for the glory of God.”
—Walter C. Kaiser Jr.
