    Growing closer to God through lament

    I had listened to his music for years but this was my first experience reading one of his books. I was not disappointed as this book helped me grow spiritually and I highly recommend it. One of my favorite quotes: ?"But it is only in lament, when we see that all we have left is all God ever wanted in the first place, that we come to the end of appeasement and begin to celebrate the true worth of God."
