Product Description

Wharton concludes that the function of Job never has been to provide answers but to keep the questions urgent and contemporary for all who set out to honor and serve God. At the simplest and most important level Job provides faithful people with this slim confort: it resounds with our cries of the heart and honors those cries as an authentic dimension of faithfulness.
