The book of Job speaks to some of the most universal issues of our human experience. Feelings of grief, misery, sorrow and distress are played out against the backdrop of a man resolute in his claim of innocence of the accusations, brought by three of his alleged friends, of being an unrepentant sinner. But Job's sufferings serve to demonstrate more truth than Job and his friends grasped. Walter Kaiser guides us through this often-neglected book to find that pure worship in suffering is not only possible, but that such times of suffering can deepen our insight into the character of God.
