Laughing In The Dark Bible Study
Street Date: 04/05/2016
Based on the hit movie, Chonda and co-writer Dale McCleskey (Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer) dig into one of the Bible’s most difficult books. Chonda parallels her life and many woman’s experiences to Job’s struggles and enduring faith. Chonda’s take on pain, loss, friends, relatives and the nature of God are filled with the truth and humor that Conda’s legions of fans have come to expect from one of the most influential Christian women in our era.
From the introduction. . .
Whether you’re new to Bible study or you like to read the original Hebrew text for relaxation, I hope you will come to value Job like a dear friend. Though we cannot answer all the questions Jo b’s story raises, I think we can learn a great deal from his experience. his story touches all of us, because all people suffer in ways we cannot explain.
On Job’s parenting. . .
The book told how he sacrificed for his children. His children would have parties and just live life. Meanwhile daddy Job would go make a sacrifice and repent for them. he even offered sacrifices for sins they might have committed. Suddenly I realized Job was among the worst parents on the planet! He never let his kids suffer their own consequences. And that’s when it hit me: Now Job, that’s where I’m exactly like you. You are a brother from another mother!
