Today, racial wounds from three hundred years of slavery and a history of Jim Crow laws continue to impact the church in America.

Martin Luther King Jr. captured this reality when he said: "The most segregated hour of Christian America is eleven o'clock on Sunday." Equipped with the gospel, the evangelical church should be the catalyst for reconciliation, yet it continues to cultivate immense pain and division. Weep with Me by Mark Vroegop is a timely resource that presents lament as a bridge to racial reconciliation in the world today. In the Bible, lament is a prayer that leads to trust, which can be a starting point for the church to "weep with those who weep" (Rom. 12:15). As Vroegop writes: "Reconciliation in the church starts with tears and ends in trust."
