As we ponder Job’s misery, do we see the threads of God’s mercy in it? We will all face suffering at some point in our lives. It is inescapable. But what makes calamity endurable is not that God shares our shock, but that through every sickness, disaster, or tragedy, his sovereign goodness sustains us.
The Misery of Job and the Goodness of God, an interpretive poem by John Piper, reminds believers of the unshakable fact that God governs all things for his good purposes—if we allow our eyes to see life in the context of God’s larger plan. Piper calls those who are struggling to know that the Lord is not only sovereign, but gracious. Also featuring the photography of Ric Ergenbright, this book combines Piper’s poetic insight with stunning imagery, drawing the reader’s attention to God’s grandeur and mercy.
