ABOUT THE BOOK:
Jim McGuiggan takes the story of Job piece by piece, explaining it in detail, and then applying it to today’s Christian. Page by page, he unfolds the righteousness of Job and the purpose behind the test. McGuiggan leads you on a journey to see the heart of Job and the heart of God… and through the pain and the questions, to finally see the greatness of God. He gives us a taste of Job’s Life on the Ash Heap.
"Have You Ever Fought God’s Battle for Him?
You’re probably already familiar with this story. You know, that guy Job, who is extremely rich – lots of money, lots of land, lots of livestock, and lots of offspring. Then he loses it all – the money, the livestock, the many children – all except his nagging wife and a few so-called friends.
But look deeper:
Look beyond the blessing of riches and see the righteous.
Look beyond the mere loss to see the conversation between God and Satan, debating God’s faithfulness.
Look deeper, and see a man whose faithfulness was tested in the face of lost wealth, family and health, and survived the scorn and accusations of his friends and his own wife.
Look even deeper to see a man that formally calls on God, and God answers.
Look to see how is this important to you." – Jim McGuiggan
