The Book of Job: God's Faithfulness in Troubled Times

Jim Halla

Paperback 2022-04-05

Publisher Description

Job, the book and the man, is well-known even in the public arena. However, the main character of the book is the Triune God. Moreover, some have suggested that the book of Job focuses on the larger problem of evil in a good God's world. By definition that would include the concept of victimhood. However, Dr. Jim Halla thinks that approach misses major issues in the book. The Book of Job: God's Faithfulness in Troubled Times presents Dr. Halla's understanding of the book under four major headings: God's sovereignty, suffering, suspicion, and success. Job began well but faltered. He considered himself alone, deafening silence from God, and his relationship with God in shambles. God took him to the zoo and the sea and Job learned well: he repented and God placed him in the position of intercessor for his friends. He functioned as a type of Christ but he was not Christ. He came to embrace those two truths. The book of Job is for all believers in all seasons no matter their spiritual maturity. As you read The Book of Job: God's Faithfulness in Troubled Times, see if you catch a glimpse of Job's radical reversal.
