For eons traditionalists have taught that God teaches by sending sickness, affliction and punishment into one’s life.

Author Alan Lee shares a unique perspective on why God allows suffering in What About Job? ($9.99, paperback, 9781498496117; $4.99, e-book, 9781498496124).

Job is a difficult book to read, and is often misunderstood. A few chapters deal with Job’s suffering, and the rest consist of a discussion of why he suffers. The book was included in the Bible so we could learn from it, so what are we to learn?

“For eons traditionalists have taught that God teaches by sending sickness, affliction and punishment into one’s life. God put your punishment and sickness on Jesus. This little book will help us understand what happened to Job,” said Lee.

Reverend Alan Lee suffered an accident at the age of five and, having been raised in church, begged God to heal his body. He waited twenty-two years for his healing and, in that time, learned a bit about suffering.
