We are continuing through the book of Job, in preparation for the next Spurgeon Audio series in the same book. Job’s friends are beginning to try to help him reason out why he has been suffering, saying that he surely must have done something against God. Job in turn expresses frustration and confusion because he would love to accept God’s correction – if he knew what he did!
This book is a picture of the difficult balance between understanding how God can be sovereign and good, and why evil seems to continue so successfully in our world. This is not a simple or easy question, or one that can be brushed off, and we ought to wrestle with it just as deeply. Listen along and please consider supporting our podcast on Patreon.
