Songs for Suffering

Songs for Suffering is a practical and immediately accessible handbook to help anyone to pray when they are feeling troubled. It is written in an engaging style, with practical suggestions for using the psalms of lament and for forming your own prayers in the light of your circumstances.

It is available now from Christian bookshops and from (for USA), from Alban Books and Amazon (UK) and in Australia from Koorong.

A review by Jules Middleton is here and one by Tanya Marlow is here.

My friend Amy Perry has produced a set of artwork – one piece for each chapter – that accompanies the book. This is available with additional commentary here.

Resource for Pastors / Ministers

An earlier booklet that covers more of the thinking behind Songs for Suffering was published as a Grove booklet and is available here (as either print copy or e-book download). This booklet is intended for pastors and ministers – those who have pastoral responsibility for others.
