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.

Job

It was a good audible book. But he doesn’t get in length with it as he does previous Bible Books. But the one thing I noticed is it was hard pressed to get any teacher delving into Job. The book offers a lot. One of the main themes people go through today why bad things happen to good people. Creasy answer the question better than most. But there was a lot to be discussed or taught in the rest Job covering 42 chapters. So I gave Dr Creasy a 5 because like always, in my opinion covers the book better than the authors I listened to previously.

Holy Cow! This was a good reading!

A little self-referential honesty here: before this reading, I disliked the book of Job...because I didn't understand it and I was very much like Job (doing what God wanted me to do so I can keep my stuff). Through Dr. Creasy's reading, I understand the book of Job, can relate to it, and even like it. I realize it's about being in a relationship with God, not all the stuff he can give you. Plus, God is truly Awesome!

A must listen to lesson...

It's candy for your ears and nourishment for your soul. Don't overlook this lesson even if you have studied Job before.

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!
