Using the book of Job as its basis, this self-study guide will help you deal with the ongoing question: "Why do the righteous suffer?" Job, a righteous man, had all his possessions taken away for no apparent reason. Through it all, and even against the advice of his wife, he remained faithful to God. In the end God restored everything to Job, with interest. The book of Job provides perhaps the greatest example of suffering and the sovereignty of God that can be found in the Scriptures.The books in the Jensen Bible Self-Study Guide series are designed to provide you with a broader understanding of God's Word.
