Course Overview

The book of Job addresses a millennia-old question: Why does a good God allow suffering? It explores the various theories people have offered in response to this troubling problem. Perhaps no other book of the Bible addresses such raw and vulnerable suffering. We learn from Job’s painfully honest example that it’s okay to struggle and question in times of great suffering and loss—provided we keep taking those questions to God and don’t lose faith in Him. We also gain wisdom on what to do and especially what not to do when those we love go through difficult times. Given the nature of Job’s themes, participants may be surprised by the encouragement they receive from this study.
