Life of Job Seminar

Jun 4, 2016 at 9:00 AM
Organizer: Tracy Van Vleet

The Book of Job is one of the most difficult books of Scripture to interpret. At the same time it is a drama par excellence which speaks to the universal human condition. The book explores the mystery of good and evil, leading Job to ask questions that are similar to the kind of questions all humans ask at some point. Job explores the interplay between reasoned faith and experience, exposing us to challenging ways to think about and experience God. Dr. Owens will help us enter the drama of Job and avoid some of the common pitfalls of engaging this important book of the Hebrew Bible.
