The Problem of Suffering in the Old Testament

Overview

Professor Peake addresses the problem of pain and suffering in this volume, including a major section on the book of Job. Beginning with the basic questions surrounding this topic, Peake moves throughout the entire Old Testament to examine the perspective on suffering in juxtaposition to the character of God. Peake believes that the character and love of God are enough to comfort us in times of trouble, even though suffering will always be mysterious and painful, and he uses the story of Job to illustrate this point.
