Richard Rohr, internationally known retreat leader, speaker and writer, plumbs the depths of the Job's story and its relevance for us today. Rohr strips Christian faith down to the essentials, beyond glib answers and a "hand-me-down" experience of God, and points the way to true knowing. In this invigorating exploration, the tension between suffering and faith becomes a powerful means to an authentic, open connection with the divine.

Job and the Mystery of Suffering: Spiritual Reflections based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Richard Rohr shares with the reader his deep understanding of God in the scriptures and of his presence in our lives. With theological wisdom he takes the mystery of suffering into the light of day, opening a new and real way of understanding suffering. It is the one peril we Christians must avoid.... that of misunderstanding suffering as a punishment or of God turning His back on us. But rather that God is present there as strongly as He is when we are joyful. The book winds through many areas of Christian experience. It is a powerful text for a group to journey together with.
