Bible Study (Spring Session 2017) – The Book of Job

We invite you to join us for our Spring 2017 Bible Study Session which will focus on the plight of Job that leads him to challenge the religious wisdom of his age as he begs God to explain his suffering and ultimate value of friendship with God. The session will start on Thursday, April 27 and complete on Thursday, June 15, 2017. (except no session on May 18, 2017 – Principals’ Meeting). Meetings will be held weekly from 10am to 12pm in the Parish Hall.

The Book of Job is a vivid testimony to pain, plea for justice, and a wrenching theological debate about suffering and its causes. There are questions about the role of God and humans in causing human suffering and whether divine-human relationship can proceed in the midst of overwhelming anguish. Readers are invited to participate in Job’s story and to work towards their own solution to the dilemmas of both Job and his friends.

This study includes individual study as well as weekly prayer and small-group discussions followed by a wrap-up lecture. (To watch a brief video introduction to Little Rock Scripture, visit
