my name is ken. i have for several months been obsessed with the book of job. I stumbled on a discussion of the book through a google search and joined this site for the opportunity to vent over some of the commentary I have been reading, not particularly this site, but everywhere.
given the statements of God within the book regards Job coming and going. except for Jesus, nobody ever gets such a ringing endorsement from God, so to argue that Job deserved or needed the trials that he suffered just doesn't seem right.
I saw after I signed up the tread has been inactive for a while. Perhaps someone reading this will care to pursue a discussion.
