About this title

Synopsis:

This study of the Book of Job (chapters 3-42) indicates that the Job of the dialogue is not the patient sufferer that is our traditional picture of him. Instead he is by turns angry, despairing, hopeful, defiant, submissive, and also a creative thinker who explores possible alternative explanations of his situation. In spite of his changing emotions, Job never gives up his faith in God, and the existential encounter at the end satisfies his religious longings.

Review:

God On Trial is a study of the Book of Job, chapters 3-42. it indicates that the Job of the dialogue is not the patient sufferer that is our traditional picture of him. Instead he is by turns angry, despairing, hopeful, defiant, submissive, and also a creative thinker who explores possible alternative explanations of his situation. In spite of his changing emotions, Job never gives up his faith in God, and the existential encounter at the end satisfies his religious longings. God On Trial will equip the Christian reader with a far more sophisticated and balanced appreciation of a key book in the Old Testament canon. -- Midwest Book Review
