out of the absence of God...

Frederick Buechner is an author that I am introducing myself to. You often see him quoted and I am beginning to understand why!

It is out of the whirlwind that Job first hears God say "who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?" job 42:3. It is out of the absence of God that God makes himself present,... God is not an answer that man can give.

Buechner, F. (1977:43). Telling the Truth: The Gospel as Tragedy, Comedy, and Fairy Tale
