Why do faithful people suffer?

Job wanted to know. So he demanded an answer from God. His friends thought he was crazy, but Job persisted. And, finally, God answered.

As Paul Stevens leads you through Job's questions and God's answers, you discover comfort, hope and meaning for the suffering in your own life.

This revised LifeGuide Bible Study features additional questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, together with expanded leader's notes and a "Now or Later" section in each study.
