BIBLE INSIGHTS

Good and evil in the book of Job

From the July 2002 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The Bible's book of Job, with its themes of suffering, divine justice, and the influence of evil, has long been referred to as a study guide for the human condition. In light of the evil that the world has seen surface in the last year—9/11, the suicide bombings, all the other causes for unrelenting fear, Job's story may offer insights to a world seeking spiritual answers.
