Bestselling author Charles Swindoll challenges us to take a closer look at Job’s life, carefully examining his response to the unexpected and painful experiences that assaulted his once peaceful and God-honoring existence–and we might just find that Job is a hero after all.
When you think of Job, you may think of a hapless victim of unfair treatment. His disastrous circumstances overwhelmed him, his so-called friends belittled him, and his distraught wife discouraged and abandoned him. Even God seemed to desert him. At first glance, Job may not seem like the traditional portrait of a hero, but Job’s patience, strength, and dedication in the face of unforeseen suffering makes his story worth knowing.
