He was a successful, faithful man who lost everything. His pain was as human as our own, his losses as devastating as any we will face. But Job refused to let go of his faith. And ih the end God gave witness that he was a "blameless and upright" man. This book is an honest look at both our pain and God's sufficiency. In it you'll find that it's all right to doubt, be confused, get angry--in short, be completely human. But in your humanness, you must always give yourself to God...even when it seems like heaven has turned its back. The personal insights in this encouraging book will bring you hope and healing through transforming encounters with the living God. And they will reassure you that even when you've lost everything, God is still there with you. And as Job discovered, that's more than enough
Anyone who has suffered knows that there is no such thing as "getting a grip on oneself" or "pulling oneself up by the bootstraps. The only bootstrap in the Christian life is the Cross," says Mason. "Sometimes laying hold of the cross can be comforting, but other times it is like picking up a snake."
Job knew this firsthand. From him we learn that there are no easy answers to suffering. That the mark of true faith is not happiness, but rather, having one's deepest passions be engaged by the enormity of God. And through Job we learn the secret of the gospel: that "mercy is the permission to be human." The Lord never gave Job an explanation for all he had been through. His only answer was Himself. But as Job discovered, that was enough.
The Gospel According to Job sensitively brings the reader to this realization, using a devotional commentary format that reminds them that it's all right to doubt, to be confused, to wonder-in short, to be completely human. But what will heal us and help us endure is a direct, transforming encounter with the living God.
