9780006279327: Shaking a Fist at God: Suffering and Protest in the Book of Job

This is a study of the different human responses to suffering. Although it is based upon the book of Job and written from a Christian perspective, it is packed with wisdom for believers and non-believers alike. Job's reactions to the horrors of his situation are exceedingly human. He is angry and resentful and places the blame upon others, especially God. His friends tell Job that his suffering is punishment for sin, but he finds this inadequate. He has to conclude that pain is the natural consequence of life in a free world. For the Christian, there is another dimension: in the suffering of Christ on the cross God shared in our pain. His loving nature was revealed, inspiring us with hope for the future.
