At the Scent of Water

Full Product Description

In this remarkable rereading of the biblical book of Job often discussed as an attempt to justify the ways of God to man J. Gerald Janzen brings new light to Jobs story, showing how God invites Job to give up the traditional logic of reward-punish-ment for a life-affirming strategy of risk-reward. From this perspective, affirmation of life in the face of all its vulnerabilities is the path to true participation in the mystery of existence. / At the Scent of Water traces Jobs journey from prosperity, through calamity and bitter anguish, to an encounter with Gods presence in a rainstorm that renews the earth and his own appetite for life. / Janzen includes a candid epilogue on his own struggle with aggressive prostate cancer, which enabled him to connect personally with Job and to find a fresh and illuminating grace. At the Scent of Water will especially resonate with any readers who have experi-enced grief or suffering.
