Rev Andy Roland introduces The Book of Job, which has been designed so it can be performed as a dramatic performance, or read on your own. The book contains an essay ‘The Meaning of Job’, reflecting on the clash between the faith of God and actual experience of tragedy, injustice and disaster.
With a foreword from Bishop Rowan Williams.
This book is for you if:
- you want to reflect on the big questions of life – suffering, injustice, faith;
- you find the Old Testament a bit unwieldy and want a straightforward way into one of the most powerful books in the Bible;
- you want a way to read Job in a week and reflect on it;
- you want to have a fascinating evening in a home group;
- you wish to hold a theological seminar on this key aspect of Old Testament Wisdom;
- you want to present Job as a drama to the general public.
