About the Book of Job

In this book we read the story of a man called Job. Job was a rich man with a big family. But Satan destroyed everything that belonged to him. Job was also a very good man. He does not understand why such bad things have happened to him. He has three friends who try to give him answers to his problem. But their words do not help Job to feel happier. Another man tries to help. But Job does not think that he has really understood the problem either.
At the end of the story, God speaks to Job. Job then understands that he cannot know everything. Only God knows everything. Only God is completely powerful. But we, like Job, must trust God, even if very bad things happen in our lives.
