Marti J. Steussy on the book of Job
S. Mark Heim on atonement
Karen-Marie Yust on children's ministry
Yes, I am the author with a selfish interest in knowing that it's being read, but I so wish people would look at "Mrs. Job," the fictional story of the wife of biblical Job -- a story which captures the emotion, morality, and even the theology of this piece of wisdom literature in a very real, down to earth, experiential way.
My web page will give you more description and take you directly to the amazon.com link. You'll find reviews to support my belief that this is a book worth reading if one is interested in Job.
