Job

Westminster John Knox Press, 01.01.2005 - 122 Seiten

In this study, noted Old Testament scholar and Christian educator David Hester focuses on the difficult questions raised in Job: where is God in the worst moments of our emptiness? What are we to do when experience casts doubt on what we have always believed? Where in the world is justice? The author brings to this writing his own experience of suffering. His touching honesty provides a moving connection between the ancient text and the world of today, inviting us to join in Job's search for hope and healing.
