Job | "Listen Up!" Bible Study (Cooperrider)
The uniqueness of the Listen Up! Bible Study series:
God's word is alive, with something new to say to all of us.
That's why the Listen Up! Bible Study series does not simply teach information about the Bible. It listens to God speak.
In these Bible studies, you will be encouraged to listen: listen to the Bible, listen to your own questions and responses, and listen to the honest sharing among participants in your study group. In that mix of biblical text, personal engagement, and honest speaking and listening, God's word may be heard, speaking challenge and comfort. (Browse the collection of Listen Up! Bible studies.)
Job Listen Up! Bible Study
Why Job? Because the story of Job is a thrilling, challenging, compelling account of the spiritual transformation that's possible when we find ourselves between the "falling apart" of the old world and the "building up" of the new.
What Kafka said about a good book seems especially apropos of Job -- that a good book should be like an icepick to break up the frozen sea within us. Reader beware: Job is an icepick of a book.
