Product Description

Featuring maps, illustrations, definitions of key terms, interesting biblical facts and features, questions for reflection or discussion, as well as leader's suggestions for group use, IBS combines a great heritage of scholarship with a fresh approach to biblical study. The book of Job is a powerful story of deep faith in tragic times. In a larger sense, it is the story of each of us who ever tried to make sense of apparently senseless suffering. In this study, noted Old Testament scholar and Christian educator David Hester focuses on the difficult questions raised in Job: Where is God in the worst moments of our emptiness! What are we to do when experience cast doubt on what we have always believed! Where in the world is justice? The author brings to this writing his own experience of suffering. His touching honesty provides a moving connection between the ancient text and the world of today, inviting us to join in Job's search for hope and healing.

    I like most of the IBS study guides we have used for our Sunday school class. I really like the information and discussion provided, however in some of the chapters the author is discussing the entire book of Job rather than focusing on the chapters for that weeks study. It still makes for good discussion but when you get to the later chapters the discussion becomes repetitive. Don't get me wrong, I do like this look.
