CD: JOB: From Tragedy to Triumph (6 Part Series)
If you know nothing else about the Book of Job you probably know it's a book based on suffering— physically, materially, emotionally, and even spiritually as God remains silent for a long period. We know that most of us would have great dif culty accepting suffering in our own lives when it comes to our health, our kids, our marriage, our job or our circumstances. The Book of Job presents us with this whole question of suffering and explores possible causes and explanations for it. “Then Job fell to the ground in worship and said: 'Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked I will depart. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised.' In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing.” —Job 1:20-22 (NIV)
Charles Price in this expository series 'Job: From Tragedy to Triumph' presents deep truths in a simple, practical and understandable manner. It is his prayer that we are able to face life as it is, with all its pain, suffering and unanswered questions. Not by burying our heads in the sand so we won't even ask the hard questions, but by discovering what Job discovered at the end of the book—that God spoke to him out of the storm, right when he was in the midst of severe tragedy, and moved on to triumph in God.
