From Harold S. Kushner , bestselling author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People and Conquering Fear, comes a thoughtful, illuminating guide to that most fascinating of biblical texts, the Book of Job, and what it can teach us about living in a troubled world.

 

The story of Job is one of unjust things happening to a good man. Yet after losing everything, Job – confused, angry, and questioning God – refuses to reject his faith. However, he does challenges some central aspects of it. Don’t miss this examination of the questions raised by Job’s experience, questions that have challenged wisdom seekers and worshippers for centuries. What kind of God permits such bad things to happen to good people? Why does God test loyal followers? Can a truly good God be all-powerful?
