This 24 hour workshop, held in Keswick, is aimed to help you grow in your understanding and appreciation of the books of Job and Ecclesiastes and we pray, in your love for the Lord.
In Christian life and ministry, it’s rare that you get the chance to have sustained time looking at two powerful and challenging Old Testament books with someone who has spent many years studying them, and who love Christ and his people!
The books of the Old Testament Wisdom Literature are among the more challenging found in the Bible. They ask hard questions, and, as readers, we are not always satisfied with the answers provided. Yet, at the same time, it is broadly acknowledged that the books of Job and Ecclesiastes speak powerfully to the unchurched world. They ask questions that people from all backgrounds have been asking for millennia and are still asking today. How do we make sense out of the experience of suffering? Where is meaning and purpose in life to be found? What about the sometimes crushing monotony of it all?
