Why do bad things happen to good people? Can suffering serve any good purpose? Why me? These are real questions that many wrestle with today—and that Job wrestled with thousands of years ago. The book of Job is a historical biography of Job, “a blameless and upright man,” one justified by faith in the sight of God. This commentary traces his spiritual journey through tragic bereavement and illness, and helps us find solutions to these and other questions, showing us that sickness and suffering are not inevitably linked to personal sin.
