THE COMFORT OF JOB

From the April 1931 issue of The Christian Science Journal


WHEN in need of comfort, many turn to certain books of the Bible, notably to the Psalms, to Isaiah, and particularly to the New Testament; but perhaps they may not realize how wonderfully comforting is the book of Job. There is comfort in the very fact that the supposititious cause of Job's sufferings was nothing but Satan, a purely imaginary personality, and that his faith in God was being tested in the face of seeming physical suffering and material loss.
