Till We Have Faces

Bareface was the original title for Till We Have Faces  by C.S. Lewis.  Lewis changed the title and it  comes from this line in the book: 

"How can [the gods] meet us face to face till we have faces?"

Another good line is :

"Why must holy places be dark places?" 

It is a retelling of Cupid and Psyche. 
It is very similar to the book of Job.
Transformation happens to Orual. 
Layers of themes abound. 
You can listen to Peter Kreeft give a lecture on the book
