Excerpt from The Man of Uz: Lessons for Young Christians From the Life of an Ancient Saint
It is, beyond all doubt, a gem of rarest beauty, and it does not concern us greatly to know who digged it from the mine of truth, who gave to it such literary polish or who fixed it in its sacred setting in the word of God.
We take the book up simply as the book takes up its hero, without a word about his genealogy or race or time or place in history; simply, There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job, and then proceeding straight away to tell us of his character and his experience.
His character is very brieﬂy but sufficiently de scribed in a single sentence He feared God and eschewed evil. This is the root of the matter. If you know What a man fears - that is, holds in reverence and love - you know the main line of his life and thought and action, for out of the heart are the issues of life.
