Getting to Know the Book of Job
Dr. Gerard McLarney;
Number of pages: 32
After the Old Testament Books of Genesis and Exodus, the Book of Job is perhaps the most familiar and favourite for Christians, especially when things go wrong in our lives, and we wonder where God is in our time of need.
Theologian and scripture scholar, and author of another book in this series, The Psalms, Gerard McLarney, offers us an insightful account of the frustration, yet faithfulness to God Job maintained during a time of great suffering. McLearney shows how this book of the Old Testament can bring meaning to our own experiences in life.
This accessible guide is perfect for Catholics curious about the Bible, parish groups, catechists and new and returning religious educators.
