Theology and Themes (Job)Bible Commentary / Produced by TOW Project
Most familiar to Bible readers as the righteous man who suffered unjustly, Job exemplifies the person who questions why good people suffer. Job’s faith in God is put to the extreme test, and the story intimates that Job’s commitment to God wanes. As we will see, Job’s woes begin at work, and the book gives us valuable insights into how a follower of God may faithfully function within the ups and downs of work life.
