The Book of Job
by Full Cast Audio
Job is a good and prosperous man, possible the best man of his time. Then, without warning, all that he has worked for is stripped from him in a sudden series of terrible disasters.
Three friends come to visit, supposedly to comfort him. But their accusations that Job must somehow have brought these calamities upon himself spark a debate.
As the four men dispute, in public, the nature of Job’s suffering they delve into ancient questions about the nature of man’s relationship to the Almighty, questions that can only be resolved by the Almight himself.
