#Bible365 – God, The Devil, and Job

I dont know about you, but I have a simple reason to read through the bible in a year.

I dont know some of it very well.

Take the book of Job for example: The combination of what I had read and what I had heard, made me think Job consisted of some sort of cosmic three way discussion between God, The Devil, and Job.

It turns into less of a cosmic conversation into an intervention, with a depressed Job, surrounded by his band of brothers trying to pull him out of it… by preaching at each other.

Now I’ve not got to the end of this sermon series yet, but I have to admit I’m a little confused about where its all going.

Does anyone have any insights on Job to share?

What is really going on in this book?

In the meantime, here is the previously mentioned “God, The Devil, and Bob”:
