GOD IN THE DARK is one woman's record of her journey through grief and beyond. Poet Luci Shaw's journal of her husband's terminal cancer begins with the doctor's first diagnosis and follows her through the early months of her widowhood. In these pages, we see the complexities of a fragile three-way relationship - between a man, a woman, and God. With deep insight and honesty, Luci Shaw probes the paradoxes of faith with which we all struggle - when we are honest enough to admit it. This story moves in and out of shadow, and if her insights seem sharp and bleak one moment, only to be clear and hopeful the next - she can only say, simply, "This is how it was. This is how I lived it." She called this book GOD IN THE DARK because it was a journey through night, through a place in which God seemed dark to her. Her penetrating question "Where is God's promised presence?" troubles us all, compelling us to investigate more urgently the mysterious ways of the Almighty. GOD IN THE DARK is for anyone who has known the loss of a loved one and wonders, "Why does God darken his face when we most need the comfort of his warmth and light?"
