Most of us, at some point in our lives, experience the sense of God's absence. Michael Card says that rather than letting the distance widen, this is exactly the time for a deeper pursuit of God. The method he proposes is recovery of the profound, biblical practice of lament.
Lament allows our sorrows and suffering to surface in free and courageous expression to God. Lament is the groan of the Holy Spirit within us: our cries and tears, our longing for God's forgiveness of our sins, His healing of our inner and outer wounds, and the mercy of His salvation. Lament is finding the language of the deepest contents of our hearts and pouring out our hopes and hurts before the Father.
In The Hidden Face of God, Michael Card leads us through forty reflections that help us learn the lost language of lament. Journey with this popular artist and writer toward a more profound and intimate connection with the heart of God.
