Thanks Burt for your reply. I had a few thoughts to share but woke up late, so they’ll have to wait. But I do have time to share one – your thoughts sound very much like Job’s!
Just recently I had the opportunity of listening to the new audio version of Job. And it was amazing – I got so much more out of it than reading it! I could actually feel it. And because of that, I enjoyed another dimension of it, that had escaped me before. And it really reminded me of your thoughts here. If you have a chance to throw on some earbuds and give it a listen, please let me know what you think. 🙂
You can find the audio link on this page: https://www.jw.org/en/publications/bible/nwt/books/job/1/
Meanwhile, I will try to collect my other thoughts and post them when I get back from my day…
