Tragedy Transformed – How Job's Recovery Can Provide Hope For Yours
"Job recovers, and so can I," says this fresh perspective on the book of Job. Job's story teaches us a way to transform tragedy and reveals a way through the secrets of recovery.
Explore how Job, along with people today, deal with tragedy, depression, and anger with God. Experience how Mike and Andrea survive Hurricane Katrina, how Melissa meets the unexpected death of her husband, and how Carl Johnson overcomes the worst effects of mental illness. Learn how strange physical illnesses disrupt the lives of young Jessica and of the author's children.
Reflect on how strong biblical faith sustains each of these, and others, through tragic circumstances. This book brings Job to life through stories of people transformed by suffering, and through the account of Job's experience with God.
