We kick off a two part series on the Book of Job. That weird book people LOVE to talk about but no one reads...
I guess that's not specific enough. That weird book where god suddenly unleashes unending cruelty on someone for no reason...
I guess that's not specific enough. It's the one where god makes a bet with Satan that he has Job gaslit enough that if he completely ruined Job's life Job would still worship him. But remember, God is Love.
The book is almost completely written in poetry and the majority of it is about Job debating with is friends whether or not he deserves all this anguish. So that's fun!
I had to read it so you have to listen to it, damn it! We'll get through this together.
