What does a book written 3,500 years ago have to say to the modern world? In A New Look at Job, author David Faulkner shows how Job’s teachings help us understand God’s purpose for our lives.
In this study of the English text of Job, Faulkner draws on a lifetime of study and preaching to help us appreciate one of the Bible’s most complex books. He explains difficult concepts, discusses issues of faith and suffering, and considers such questions as:
• What is the real meaning of Job?
• What does Job say to those who teach that Job suffered because of his own sin?
• How do the teachings in Job conform to the rest of scripture?
• What does a careful study of the book reveal about the doctrines of certain prominent teachers today?
In A New Look at Job, Faulkner explains that Job can be tough to translate, and it raises hard questions, but it also rises to tremendous heights. He shows that Job is an inspiring work of great beauty and demonstrates amazing insight into the ways of God, the splendor of his creation, and the condition of sinful, redeemed humanity.
