JOB - GOD'S TRIAL OR SATAN'S ATTACK by Joyce Taiwo is a valuable reference for all Christians that clearly and responsibly teaches the truth about the story of Job by using scripture to back her findings and conclusions. For some Christians the story is more a picture of God allowing Satan to afflict him, but Joyce reveals a greater truth behind the story that is vital to know and understand for successful Christian living.
Once she had received salvation and learned about God's deliverance she began to experience much conflict over the interpretation of Job's story that she had learned in her childhood church. However, her confusion turned to a burning desire to dig deeper into the scriptures and I am so thankful that she did. From the beginning of the book I couldn't help but admire Joyce. It takes great courage to challenge what one has learned from those who are considered spiritual leaders and teachers of the Bible. However, she chose to put Bible doctrine and Scriptural truth over tradition. This is such an important lesson for Christians because it's easy in our busy lives to just accept what we hear, but we need to be responsible concerning scripture in order to grow in Christ and win others to their salvation.
Because of the author's commitment to living the truth of God's Word, she has created a invaluable study for all Christians at all levels of faith. Sadly, the story Of Job has been taught for years in a way that has kept Christians from living the full measure of God's love and blessings, but Job - God's Trial Or Satan's Attack can bring clarity to the hearts and minds of Christians who have had a vague idea about faith and God's blessings. Without understanding God's loving nature and the essence of His true character, it isn't possible to receive answered prayer or develop the kind of faith that moves mountains.
Joyce has made it easy for Christians to find clarity in the scripture concerning Job and the New Testament reality that we have been redeemed through Jesus Christ. I applaud the author's great writing presentation and organization of scripture that gives a vivid picture about God's attitude toward Satan and Job and the understanding Job received that caused the restoration of his life. It's very clear to me that Joyce was inspired by the Holy Spirit to write this important, "must have" study!
