A Survey of Job
The subject of pain and suffering is a popular one for a very simple reason—humans experience a lot of it. At this very moment, vast numbers of people around the globe are enduring physical and emotional trauma—heartache, illness, death. Ours is a life of suffering. We enter the world crying. We walk through the world with our shoulders bent into the fiery blast and icy blizzard of affliction. We leave the world in death. As one writer put it: “Man is born for trouble, / As sparks fly upward.” Who offered this insight? A philosopher in an ivory tower or a monk in cloistered monastery? No. These words dripped with pain from the pen of a flesh-and-blood sufferer. These words came from the pen of Job.
