Pain and suffering. They’re both an inescapable part of the human condition. But why? If God loves us—and is all-powerful—why does He allow so much suffering? How are we to respond to our own tragedies? And how can we best comfort others? The book of Job is an excellent framework for this discussion. This week on The Land and the Book, you’ll meet Job as you’ve never met him before, for encouragement in your own trials.
