Job and the Life of Faith: Wisdom for Today’s World
The book of Job cuts straight to the heart of what it means to be human and wrestles with some of life’s most perplexing questions. Why do bad things happen to good people? Is there a correspondence between sin and suffering, obedience and blessing? Why should we serve God if there are no guarantees of blessings a freedom from loss and harm. While God does not answer Job’s questions, He leads Job to recognize faith as an exercise in radical trust that will sustain him no matter what hard time or reversal comes. With unpredictability ramping up in our world, we need Job’s lessons to help us persevere without losing our trust in God.
