The Perennial Saga of Job
Job was subjected to a great deal of suffering through the loss of his family, estate, health, and livestock. In the midst of this, he also was subjected to loneliness through misunderstanding at the hands of his friends. We sometimes go through times where there are trials like this where we feel like our lives are falling apart. In this audio lecture, Dr. James Houston shares about how our Lord is with us in the midst of these sufferings through exploring the depths of human suffering revealed by Job.
