Job is the first poetic book of the Christian Old Testament. Addressing the theme of God's justice in the face of human suffering — or more simply, "Why do the righteous suffer?" — it is a rich theological work setting out a variety of perspectives. Dr Graeme Garrett will explore ways in which this book is relevant for us today.
