"Verbin studies the instances of abuse delivered by God in the Old Testament's book of Job. The differences between suffering and abuse are presented and applied to the story in an agnostic manner. The injustices inflicted upon Job lead to feelings of cynicism and hatred of his abuser thus causing a religious dilemma. Drawing from psychological, philosophical, and theological references on happiness, self-worth, and forgiveness, Verbin provides an insightful analysis of Job's dilemma. Job's ultimate position of forgiveness is presented as empowering as his relationship with God is not restored to the intimacy it had once enjoyed, but rather, to a distant relationship of caution." -Eithne O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc.
