Abstract:

The book of Job is the harrowing story of a man whose life changed so dramatically in the course of a few short days. It is about the problem of suffering and the answer to the problem is not seen in the comments of Job's counselors but more importantly in his response to suffering. The book of Job teaches us how to respond to difficulties in our lives. Job's acceptance of his loss is a model of piety. When Job responds with questions and even a measure of bitterness and anger, his frustration is always taken directly to God. Job never lost faith, he is a model of cross-bearing and he teaches us to persevere even in the incomprehensible ways of God in our lives. - Publisher.
