The book of Job: probing the mysteries of God’s justice and human misery 

Overview

You are invited to join in a close study of the book of Job to uncover its response to some of today’s biggest questions:

  • Can it really be said that God governs the world justly when we consider the unrelenting impact of disease, disaster and human misery?
  • How do we come to terms with innocent suffering?
  • On a lighter note, about the book itself: Is God really in the habit of laying bets with Satan about the strength of his servants’ faith?
Presenter
  • Dr Peter Lockwood, Lecturer in Old Testament studies at ALC
