the Book of Job

Posted by Dr. Bob on January 10, 2014, at 23:07:19

Hi, everyone,

I recently read an interesting piece on the Book of Job:

by Joan Acocella
December 16, 2013

> It is certainly not the first instance in which God inflicts appalling misery on his people. In Genesis, he killed everyone on Earth except those on Noahs ark. But Job is highly individualizeda person like us. He is probably the character in the Old Testament we sympathize with most closely. ... Therefore, his struggle to go on believing in God is something that theologians and moralists have had to think about.

How do you all reconcile the existence of evil with a benevolent and omnipotent God?
