Experience the book of Job through a different set of eyes. In When You Want to Yell at God, Craig Bartholomew asks us to let go of the Job we think we know so we can get to know the real man. Job’s story refutes the idea that what goes around comes around. Suffering is not always the result of wrong behavior, and right behavior does not always guarantee blessing. But God is always faithful. Looking at Job as the height of biblical poetry, Bartholomew helps us see just how beautiful and touching this man’s struggle with God really is.

In the Transformative Word Series, you’ll read the Bible with a global cast of church leaders and scholars. Contributors from around the world write in their native language, and their volumes are then translated and published in multiple languages.
