Men’s New Family Roles

Some Implications for Therapists
  • Michael Berger

Abstract

The lament of the Psalmist was caused by the consequences of the Babylonian Captivity—the removal of the Jews from the land (and perhaps the heart) of their Lord. The task posed for the Jews by their captivity was how to create anew a state of grace between themselves and their Lord, a state in which the Lord’s song could again be properly sung.
