The Message of Job: Suffering And Grace by David Atkinson
In the Book of Job we meet a man who is afflicted physically and emotionally. We encounter friends who do their best, but make things worse. We are brought face to face with intellectual puzzles. Through all this, and because of it, we find Job struggling with his faith in God. In this compelling study, David Atkinson guides through The Message of Job to show that Job's story has the power to reach into our human situation, and to engage with our human needs. Although facing suffering, both personally and on a wider scale, can be challenging, in the Book of Job we can find comfort and reassurance that God is with us through it all. A revised edition in the much loved Bible Speaks Today series of commentaries, The Message of Job offers an encouraging and thoughtful pastoral exploration of Job's struggles. It will be of particular help for those involved in ministry and counselling who are supporting others in their suffering. Used by Bible students and teachers around the world, the Bible Speaks Today commentaries are ideal for students and preachers who want to better get to grips with Scripture and deepen their understanding its original context as well as its continued relevance in the twenty-first century. This beautifully redesigned edition has been sensitively updated to include modern references and use the NIV Bible text. The Message of Job is perfect for anyone looking for stimulating, readable commentaries on Job that will broaden their understanding of how they can learn from it today.
