Item Description...
When David laments in the psalms or Job complains to God, more often than not they accuse God of hiding His face. They know what we have forgotten; the answer to our suffering is never the specific solution for which we cry out. It is not some cure or provision that we really need. We never ask for what we really need, and so it is no wonder that we are so often disappointed in our prayers. Because what we need is Presence. We need to see the Face of God.

Publishers Description
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.

Community Description
Many serious Christians today are struggling with a lack of depth in their spiritual lives. There often seems to be a disconnect between their expectations and their experiences of God. Making matters worse, it can feel as though God has completely removed his presence, causing a sense of abandonment.

Michael Card believes that a vital, missing piece in our relationship with God is lament: a longing for God's forgiveness of our sins, his healing of our outer and inner wounds, and the mercy of his salvation. Card presents a 60-day journey exploring the lost language of lament, guiding you through the words of Jesus, Job, the Psalms, and more. You'll discover that an honest, sorrowful heart can open a door to connecting with God in a truly genuine way.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
When there are no words...  Feb 5, 2008
..Michael Card is one of the few who has the insight to find some. The subject of lament is a diffult one. How do we offer our tears, fustrations and sometimes anger to God as a worship offering. Michael Card deals with this subject with wisdom from the life of Job, David, Jeremiah and finally Jesus. I was fortunate to attend a retreat where Michael Card walked thirty of us through this book and the process of lament. The good news; God always shows up. When we are in a season of lament and then we come out, God's presence is finally most important.
