EB 659 Job and a Biblical View of Suffering 2 credits

Starting with the text of Job appropriate Biblical passages will be examined that deal with the Christians response to suffering. The Theology of the Cross will be contrasted with the Theology of Glory, and justification will be studied as solely the work of God. The goal of this course is to give the student a thoroughly Biblical view of suffering that will enable one to work through the difficult questions brought on by hardship.
