I was working on the Psalms of lament section, and I ended up re-requesting 2 books I read back in 2015 but hadn't taken notes on -- Living Through Pain: Psalms and the Search for Wholeness by Kristin M. Swenson, 2005 (for the Psalms) and The Mystery We Celebrate, the Song We Sing: A Theology of Liturgical Music by Kathleen Harmon, 2008 (for the use of music in worship).
My chapter on psalms of lament also discusses African-American spirituals (Monica Coleman has commented that when Jesus on the cross cried out, "My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?" from Psalm 22, he was singing a lament song of his people -- the Psalms were the songbook of his people, just like the spirituals were the songbook of African-American slaves) and I realized that I don't have much to work with about the usage of Psalms of lament as part of the songbook of a people like spirituals, so I ended up going through the library catalog tag on the Psalms, and I'm bummed that it's all white dudes (I've been on a pretty intent break from books by white dudes for about 2 years now), but I'm so excited to dive into these books:
- Finding lost words : the church's right to lament edited by G. Geoffrey Harper and Kit Barker (2017)
- The Psalms as Christian lament : a historical commentary by Bruce K. Waltke, James M. Houston, and Erica Moore (2014)
- In the house of the Lord : inhabiting the psalms of lament by Michael Jinkins (1998)
- The spirituality of the Psalms -- Carroll Stuhlmueller (2002)
- Spirituality of the Psalms by Walter Brueggemann (2001)
