The book of Job will take you through a timeless and hauntingly beautiful poetic discussion of the nature of suffering and the causes of evil. The individual sessions follow the book's natural divisions and demonstrate its character as an unparalleled example of dramatic wisdom literature. You'll follow the extended conversation in the book step by step as Job's friends describe how God's ways are disclosed through the workings of nature and expressed in the accumulated wisdom of experience and as Job appeals in response to the mystery of unexplained suffering. Through this guide, individuals and groups will better appreciate the complexities behind their own unanswered questions about suffering, and they will discover, with Job, that the universe is still governed by an all-knowing and compassionate God.
