Dark Clouds, Deep Mercy: Discovering the Grace of Lament

Mark Vroegop

Publisher: Crossway, 2019, 224 pages


Lament is a neglected dimension of the Christian life for many Christians. This book helps us see the need to recover the practice of honest spiritual struggle that gives permission to vocalize our pain and wrestle with sorrow. Vroegop helps the reader understand that lament avoids trite answers and quick solutions, progressively moving us toward deeper worship and trust in God. The author invites us to grieve, struggle, and tap into the rich reservoir of grace and mercy God offers in the darkest moments of our lives.
