How Can God Be Just With Man?
Not only is it the oldest in Scripture, but the one book we try to avoid. As we look into Job, it is looking back - we know it could happen to us. An upright man has lost everything because of a challenge above.
"Is God really just?" is the question here, as he uses evil to his advantage, ensuring he gets the glory. But we are not the pawns we think, as God will make clear to Job. Everything formed has been for a purpose, whether mighty, wise, solitary, menacing, or absurd.
In his latest work, There Was A Man, author Joe Conti gives the reasons why:
1. Effective preaching must astonish its hearers, as does a suffering Messiah
2. Wisdom is knowledge rightly applied in the shadow of the cross
3. Greatness is measured by persecution and our receipt of rebuke
4. The zealous Elihu is a dress rehearsal for the final act of Job
We will also consider the unicorn, leviathan, and behemoth; the need for knowing our limitations; and whether Job's children were saved. The man from Uz will talk too much, try too hard, and stumble. But in the end he will know there is love in every purpose divine.
So will the reader, with this our hope, that you not fear this book again.
