The story of Job is one of the most famous in the Bible: At Satan's urging, God tests faithful Job. The pious man becomes covered with boils, loses his fortune and his family, and is mocked by his friends. Still, he retains his faith and is eventually rewarded. This presentation, taken from the 2002 Nexus Conference in Holland, retells Job's story, then discusses its meaning. Since the program is taken from live discussion at a conference, it's not a polished, studio-produced work. It does raise interesting points about good and evil, American culture, and the story of Job. This entry from the CBC's Ideas series will get you thinking about how the biblical story relates to modern life. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
