So, you’re in the Old Testament book of Job. Way to go! Get ready for the mental rollercoaster that lies ahead! You’ve stepped into one of the most sophisticated and mind-bending literary works in the Bible. This book has been designed to stimulate your mind and heart by raising huge questions about God’s character and the meaning of human suffering. However, just so you know, no straightforward answers lie within. Rather, the reader is invited to ponder the pain and complaining of Job (Job 1-3, 19, 29-31), the puzzling speeches of God (Job 38-41), and the surprise conclusion of the whole story (Job 42). Most people finish the book feeling unsure they got the point, but convinced they’ve experienced something profound.
