Audible Editor Reviews

Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to depict a vivid picture of the works of scripture. Somewhere between a sermon and a college lecture, he delivers these audiobooks with authority but a pleasantly friendly voice and a touch of fun, using contemporary references.

Dr. Creasy recounts that the overall lesson from the books of Genesis through Esther seems to be that good things happen to those who follow God’s law, which does not always hold true in reality. This is the driving question behind The Book of Job: Why do bad things happen to good people?

Publisher's Summary

With Esther, we end the linear narrative of the Hebrew Scriptures. And if we can draw one lesson from Genesis through Esther, it is this: “If we do what God says, all will go well; if we don’t, it won’t.” And then we turn the page to Job. Job does everything God wants, and his life is a disaster! As we know from our own experience: bad things often happen to good people, even when they are fully aligned with God. So what gives? Job explores this paradox, calling into question the fundamental lessons we learn in the first 700 pages of Scripture. Each book after Esther in the Christian canon of the Hebrew Scriptures is a recapitulation into the main narrative. Job takes us back to the start, to the time of Abraham, and it raises serious questions.

    "Dr. Creasy is awesome"

    Great insight into a book that I have a hard time with. The more I listen to Dr. Creasy the more I understand God's word.

    "You can't go without this title if really want to understand the book of Job"

    Finally! Why don't they teach this in the churches??? It is if what people say about the book - and priests allow them to say - is a very parody of the book itself teaches us. If you REALLY want to understand Job, this title is a very good way to it.

    "The Book Of Job"

    Absolutely riveting! A must "listen to" again! Finally an answer as to why this happened to Job. As well as, taught in a most dramatic and captivating dialogue. Thank you Dr. Creasy!
