Books

The life of Joseph is familiar to most people, even if they are not familiar with much else from the Old Testament. Like a camera from different angles, in this brief study, the life of Joseph is the means to meditate on the goodness of God in showing favor to Joseph, how sin offends a Holy God, and how both God’s sovereignty and His providence reign and rule over our circumstances. In many respects these themes intertwine and overlap, but each give us opportunity to worship our Lord.
The Book of Job strikes a chord with believers and nonbelievers alike. Why? Because despite our differences with respect to faith in Christ as our Lord and Savior, being indwelt by the Holy Spirit, and having God as our Father, there is the common human condition – being made in the image of God, yet subjected to suffering. The world wants to know why there is suffering. The religious want to know why bad things happen to “good people”. But true believers in Christ know that suffering is the result of sin – that of a fallen world and fallen humanity.
We come to the book of Job for answers and sometimes walk away with more questions. In this free e-book you’ll find a concise guide to aid you in your study on the mystery of God’s providence by introducing the structure and main themes of the book, providing interpretive keys, understanding the pattern of speeches as well as their content, ultimately concluding with an examination of how Job, a righteous sufferer, points us to Christ, the truly righteous Sufferer.
Through this effort, may God be glorified and His people edified.
