Entering Job's Story


"To enter the story of Job as a participant in a real-life drama is to identify with the characters, fell the intensity of the conflict, stand at the turning point, follow the path of resolution, see the revelation, and know the reconciliation. Like a peak experience in the theater, Job leaves us awed with its power, moved by its passion, stretched by its thought, and irrevocably changed by its message."


David McKenna, Job, Mastering the Old Testament (Dallas: Word, 1986), 20.
