The Job Sessions: Why Do The Innocent Suffer?

People who suffer deeply often turn to the Book of Job in the Bible. This book is about an innocent man who underwent great suffering: first he lost his assets, his children, all the things he held dear but his wife. Then he lost his health.

Overview

People who suffer deeply often turn to the Book of Job in the Bible. This book is about an innocent man who underwent great suffering: first he lost his assets, his children, all the things he held dear but his wife. Then he lost his health. He, once a prosperous pillar of the community, a faithful man of God, was reduced to sitting in the dust, covered in boils, helpless to help himself. Hearing of his great suffering, his friends came to sit with him. And there begins the real tale of Job.

And that is why people who suffer a crisis for no reason and then suffer cascading consequences from that crisis look to the Book of Job. They look there for an answer to that tough question: why do bad things happen to good people? It is unflinching in its answer.

But this book of prose and poetry is a long read and sometimes hard to understand. It’s helpful to have a guide with you. This is mine for you.

Meet the Author

I write a mix of books: novels, biography, short nonfiction. I set my novels in Toronto, my home for most of my life, a city of contradictions and ripe with conflict possibilities. My debut book, LIFELINER, is set in Ontario, but also travels down to New York and across the pond to Sweden. My life is one big question mark, has been ever since I sustained a closed head injury (or mild traumatic brain injury or concussion, whichever moniker is fashionable) in a four-car collision. But my writing keeps me grounded, my photography takes me to other places. When I'm not writing, reading, taking photographs, I'm hunting for good coffee and sensational chocolate.
