How Does God Treat His Friends?
Learning from the Book of Job
Is there fairness and justice in life?
What are we to do or say when a genuinely good person is overwhelmed by appalling disasters? Such a character was Job - a man who was wise, compassionate and historic, yet who suffered desperate tragedy. In this explanation of the suffering Bob Fyall points out that the story of Job is about real human experience - someone "sitting on an ash heap in harsh and bitter agony and loneliness".
Why did God permit such a fate?
In answering this question the author brings help to all who wonder at the fairness and justice of God. Fyall also shows how the life of Job gives real hope to all of us - demonstrating as it does the goodness of God and his power over darkness.
Bob Fyall is Senior Tutor in Ministry for the Cornhill Training Course (Scotland). Prior to that he was the Director of Rutherford House, Edinburgh. He is an experienced pastor, preacher and Old Testament scholar.

"Much help... for anyone intending to preach or teach on Job... Those who have read other works on Job may well find themselves saying as they come to the conclusion of this one, ‘Now it is clear what the Book of Job is about.'"
"Here is an expository gem. Bob Fyall gives us a non-technical guide to Job that is both digestible and substantial, both clear and warm. This book is my first choice for anyone who wants to get a 'handle' on Job--and to meet the God of grace lurking in its pages."
