Finding Hope in the Book of Job
In the Bible, Job is an upright, innocent, and faithful man with seemingly every reason to expect a long and happy life. Instead, Job faces intense personal suffering: the loss of his family, unbearable physical afflictions, and three discouraging friends. And yet, upon closer examination, the book of Job is about more than just Job's suffering; it's a story about God and his relationship to all of human suffering, posing the question How can a sovereign God let evil run rampant?
In his latest book, Christopher Ash examines the story of Job to answer the question Where is God in the midst of suffering? With honesty and compassion, he explores the roles Satan, the fall, and the cross of Jesus Christ play in human suffering. As readers walk through this practical guide to the life of Job, believers can find assurance that God will be with them in Christ through every season and every trial.
