The Book of Job: A Different Perspective

27th June – 1st July 2016

Lyn Bechtel takes us through the Book of Job in this surprisingly subversive, almost comic, critique of the prevailing theological orthodoxy.

The first poetic book in the Christian Old Testament and of unknown authorship, the Book of Job raises issues such as whether people should stay faithful to God if they aren’t rewarded, or are unfairly punished, and, most importantly, why God allows evil to in the world.

The book is a bewildering but rich theological work laying out a series of different perspectives on righteousness and keeping faith. Explore it in this week-long course.

Residential prices start from £384, non-residential from £290. Discount rates for clergy and students apply.
