Epigraph
Behold, we consider those blessed who remained
steadfast. You have heard of the steadfastness of
Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord,
how the Lord is compassionate and merciful.

JAMES 5:11
Dedication
To
Dick Lucas
First words
[A Word to Those Who Preach the Word] There are times when I am preaching that I have especially sensed the pleasure of God.
[Preface] "The grandest book ever written with pen." So wrote the Victorian essayist Thomas Carlyle about the Old Testament book of Job.
Introduction] The book of Job raises three big questions: What kind of world do we live in? What kind of church should we want? What kind of Savior do we need.
In what sort of a world would you like to live?
[Epilogue] Now we come to the marvelous conclusion of the book of Job.
