Let me express thanks to Danny Akin for allowing me to participate in the Christ-Centered Exposition series as well as to David Stabnow at B&H for his careful editing and shepherding of this project to completion.
Many thanks to Meagan Lacey, Evan Longo, and Daniel Dickard, who edited many of the chapters. It would have not been complete without their help. Thanks also to Adam Mallette and Deana Loyd for their administrative help during the writing process. I am also grateful to Immanuel Baptist Church, especially as we studied the book of Lamentations together. After five weeks in Lamentations, thank you is the least I can say! Special thanks to my spectacular wife, Ashley. She has helped me understand the ongoing mystery of Lamentations as we walked this path together. It’s good to bear down (Lam 3:27).
