This powerful book has three great themes: The sovereignty of God, the age-old battle between God and Satan, and the age-old question of why the godly suffer and why God seems to hide his face in times of trouble.
The study of this book will challenge and encourage every saint. Job is a powerful illustration of the truth of Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
Note that the verse says “all things,” but we often wonder if it really means “all things.” Consider Job. All things for him meant the violent destruction of his children, the sudden loss of all of his property, the unexpected onslaught of a terrible disease, the failure ofhis wife’s faith in God, the cruelty of his best friends, and the mocking of society at large. It appears that “all things” truly means all things! Job teaches the saint to praise the Lord and trust Him in the direst circumstances.
We show how that Job did not know the reason for his affliction and why it was essential that he not know. This study not only contains lessons about God’s sovereignty and the suffering of the saints, but also on Satan, friendship, philosophy, science, prosperity and want, and many other things.
