The book of Job cuts straight to the heart of what it means to be human. It is the most profound exploration of the life of faith ever written and wrestles with some of life's most perplexing questions. When bad things happen how do we serve God if there are no guarantees.
There was never a time when the book of Job was not relevant but it is especially relevant in today's world. Job at least needs to know how to live without guarantees. The real theme of Job has to do with the limits of human wisdom. God does not answer Job's questions about suffering but reminds Job that he is out of his League. We do not have all of the answers: God does. Faith, as Job understands it, is an exercise on radical trust.
