Just about all of my pre-conceived notions about God have taken somewhat of a beating outside of the knowledge that Jesus is Lord, but my awareness of Him and His great provision for us all has grown by leaps and bounds as a result of this book. Another result is that Job is now my favorite non-Jesus character in the Bible, perhaps because I see so much of myself in him, and can therefore relate to his struggles.
Buy it, read it, pass it along. It is a hidden gem. And chalk up another five-star rating to add to Mason's already perfect 10.
UPDATE: I am now almost finished reading this book through for the third time. I have never done that before with any book other than the Bible. I am also ordering another copy today for someone I just met who is struggling. For others who are facing struggles of their own, who are hurting and asking "Why?", this is the book to get or to give!
UPDATE : Now, in 2017, I am reading through this wonderful book yet again. I have lost count of my number of readings, or of the number of copies I have given away. And Job continues to be my favorite character in the Bible outside of Jesus. The Book of Job has also now become my favorite book in all of the Old Testament, admittedly against some tough competition.
The questions of when, where and how the information all came together in this fascinating account remain; insight into it all, though, offers encouragement and hope to all who struggle with ever-increasing burdens, attack, and loss in a nation and a world that seem to have lost their way.
