The book of Job is a powerful story of deep faith in tragic times. In a larger sense, it is the story of each of us who ever tried to make sense of apparently senseless suffering. In this study, noted Old Testament scholar and Christian educator David Hester focuses on the difficult questions raised in Job: Where is God in the worst moments of our emptiness? What are we to do when experience casts doubt on what we have always believed? Where in the world is justice? The author brings to this writing his own experience of suffering. His touching honesty provides a moving connection between the ancient text and the world of today, inviting us to join in Job's search for hope and healing.Download a free study guide here.
