"Interpretation Bible Studies" (IBS) offers solid biblical content in a creative study format. Forged in the tradition of the celebrated "Interpretation" commentary series, "IBS" makes the same depth of biblical insight available in a dynamic, flexible, and user-friendly resource. Designed for adults and older youth, "Interpretation Bible Studies" can be used in small groups, in church school classes, in large group presentations, or in personal study. Each volume focuses on ten key passages from a book of the Bible, and can serve as the basis for a ten-session study or be easily modified for shorter or longer schedules. Featuring maps, illustrations, definitions of key terms, interesting biblical facts and features, questions for reflection or discussion, as well as leaders' suggestions for group use, "IBS" combines a great heritage of scholarship with a fresh approach to biblical study. The book of "Job" is a powerful story of deep faith in tragic times. In a larger sense, it is the story of each of us who ever tried to make sense of apparently senseless suffering.;In this study, noted Old Testament scholar and Christian educator David Hester focuses on the difficult questions raised in "Job": where is God in the worst moments of our emptiness? What are we to do when experience casts doubt on what we have always believed? Where in the world is justice? The author brings to this writing his own experience of suffering. His touching honesty provides a moving connection between the ancient text and the world of today, inviting us to join in Job's search for hope and healing.
