Questions and consolations from the book of Job
  • Why does a good God allow innocent suffering?
  • Why does a just God act unfairly?
  • Why does a sovereign God let disease and evil run rampant?
These are not questions asked from the onlooker's armchair, nor from the academic's desk, but from the anguish of the sickbed and the frustration of the wheelchair. The problem of pain is considered with the heart as well as the head.

Christopher Ash leads us through the biblical story of Job as we wrestle with these questions today. He honestly explores the lonely and cruel nature of suffering and whether God can be found in the midst of it. He exposes the shortcomings of Job's friends who deny the possibility of innocent suffering, and are unaware of the roles that Satan, the fall and the cross have to play. With compassion and clarity he takes the reader through Job's long debate with God – towards a humbling and hopeful resolution.

- Publisher Ash explores the lonely and cruel nature of suffering and whether or not God can be found in the midst of it. He exposes the shortcomings of Job's friends, and takes the reader through Job's long debate with God towards a humbling--and hopeful--resolution. (Biblical Studies)

A trustworthy companion
5 stars By Sam, Aug 28 2017
Job is one of the most intriguing books of the Old Testament, and can intimidate due to its size and poetic style. I highly recommend Ash's 'Out of the Storm' as a guide to read alongside. 
It is short (only 111 pages), easy to read, and Ash combines a gentle pastoral tone with robust exegetical and biblical research. He will not only help you navigate this sometimes distant feeling text, but constantly point you to Jesus - not in a flippant way, but considerate of the tension and drama of suffering Job and the questions that confront us all when we meet suffering.
