    The Book of Job ePUB á The Book Epub / book download, The Book book, The Book of Job EpubReading the Biblical Book of Job one could conclude that God is evil feckless or even nonexistent Not until we get to the Book of Revelation do we find a book so controversial and open to so many meanings This is why Mark Larri has performed a useful service with his The Book of Job A Biography which examines the different interpretations of the book through the ages and through the eye of the present time Consider the framing story we find at the book's beginning God is making a bet with Satan that Job's prosperity is not dependent on the deity's favoring him He lets the devil do whatever he wishes to Job to affect his worship of the Creator In the process Satan runs off his herds and kills his wife and children leaving the once powerful man bemoaning his faith in a pile of ashes From there it gets even stranger He is consoled by three friends who essentially say it's all his own fault Then there is a mysterious character named E

    The Book of Job ePUB á The Book Epub / book download, The Book book, The Book of Job EpubThis was a wonderful informative look at one of my favorite biblical books The book of Job One of the most poetic challenging and distressing books of the Bible the book of Job asks why do good people suffer? The book has been cherished by Holocaust survivors who see in Job a kindred spirit Elie Wiesel famously lectured on Job for over thirty years telling others that Job was right to put God on trial His only disappointment in the book was that Job did not rebel enough Early Christianity incorporated Job's laments into funeral services finding Job's laments and curses echoes of humanity's own anxieties about death and suffering In a secularized world the Book of Job has even been lauded by atheists and humanists who see in Job a righteous indignation against a cruel and unjust God Larri brilliantly traces the history of the book while remaining respectful toward the many different interpretations literal figurative new hist
