Interrm:tomd Unt|ovm Sunday Schoa Le~ont Bible Material: ffob 1; 19; 28; 38; 42. Devotional Beading: James 1:2-12. aith gust 2, I959 THE CHAPTERS forming the "Bible Material" for this week are inadequate, and the few verses chosen for printing in most Sun- day school quarterlies or leaflets are pitifully inadequate, to give the reader an impression of the book of Job such as that tremen-~::~ dous book de- serves. This col- umn therefore ~~ will be devoted this week to giv- ing briefly the ~~ background of ~~i!t~ Job and to on-li:~ :~ couraging the ~mm~..- :~mm reader to explore Dr. Foreman the great book itself. An "All Men's Book" One of the great writers and thinkers of the 19th century called Job an "all men's book." Just a year or so ago a distinguished American writer produced a play, "J. B.," based directly on the book of Job. This book speaks to people who never read any other book of the Bible. Most of the Old Testa- ment is distinctly Jewish (not that this is a mark against it) ; but the book of Job is not Jewish. There is in it no mention of the promised land, or of the peop~ made famous in Hebrew history. There is no reference to the temple nor to its sacrifices, no quotation from any prophet. In fact Job is not repre- sented as even being a Hebrew himself. He is one of the "children of the East,"--in Jewish eyes a foreigner. There is npthing to at- tach the book to any particular place or time. For the problem dealt ~dth here--and it is indeed a problem play in a profound sense --is your problem and mine and everybody's. " Prologue in Heaven The theme and the problem is suffering, revery human being either suffers personally or has to watch the suffering of those he loves. But this is more of a puzzle to religious persons. The non-re- ligious person can shrug it off, de- cide to grin and bear it, and say, "Well, what can you expect ? We ~re caught in this vast universe like a fly in a printing-press, no wonder we get crushed. No me,- chine cares for what it mashes." But the religious Person believes in a God who is all-powerful, all- wise, all-merciful. All creatures are in his hand, the whole world is in his hand as the song says. So then why doesn't he prevent suffering, if he can? This is the problem; but it is not discussed as a professor or theolo- gian might discuss it, in an essay. It is put into the form of a dra- matic poem. It begins with a prologue in heaven. God's sons have come to see him, and among them is Satan. God asks Satan where he has been, and Satan says on the earth. God asks him if he has seen that good man, God's servant Job, "a blame- less and upright man." Satan says yes, but he doesn't think much of Job. God pays Job well for being good; who wouldn't be "good" for the prosperity and happiness which Satan has no faith in Job; but God has. God lets Satan bring ca- lamity after calamity on Job's head, quite sure that Job will hold true. And Job does hold true. His faith stands the test. But mean- while there is a tremendous and agonizing wrestling with the prob- lem. Job has three friends who come to "comfort" him but all they do is debate. They believe that all suffering is caused by sin, and therefore all Job has to do is re- pent and his troubles will vanish. He knows that his sins have not brought on these troubles, so how can he repent ? So begins the great debate. This is not a book for chil* dren, it is for grown people who have wrestled with pain, grief and bitterness. The reader should try to read Job for himself, and see how it comes Out. One striking fact: The question, Why do good men suffer? is never really an- swered in the book; it is unique in the Bible in raising a great question it does not answer. But two great truths stand out: God's faith in his servants~ and God's servant's faith in God. Philadelphia Preacher To ,Be Guest Speaker At ,Mannings Revival REV.

ALL FOR THF CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of character and good citizenship. h is a storehouse of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: (I) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regularly and read your Bible daily. Book Chapter Verses Exodus 20 8-11 Psalms 24 1-5 I Thessalonians 4 1-6 !
