Deep Things Out of Darkness: The Meaning of Suffering in the Book of Job

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The biblical book of Job grapples with the question of questions: why do we suffer? This session will explore how understanding Job's story empowers us to use our experiences of adversity to grow toward more meaningful relationships with God, others and ourselves. Its original perspective is based on classical midrashim, logotherapy (a psychology of man’s search for meaning, developed by Viktor Frankl) and the visual interpretations of the book of Job, by William Blake.
