The Hidden Face of God: Finding the Missing Door to the Father Through Lament by Michael Card

Most of us, at some point, 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.
