Reviews - What do customers think about Meet Mrs. Job?
Appreciation of the virtuous woman Mar 5, 2009
I want to address you directly, Carolyn L. Reynolds, with an apology to myself and to you that I didn't find you and your Mrs. Job sooner. I felt like I was with a sister with whom I would, however, have some disagreement. But we would nod in agreement that Mrs. Job is finally appreciated after all the years of vilification. As we poured more hot water in our tea, we would agree that so much enlightenment occurs when we realize that she is part of Wisdom literature and that Proverbs 31:10-31 is an appropriate model for her.
We would concur in the observation that she was a true helpmeet to Job, and truly suffered with him in the trials. Her grief would be tangible as we thought of the loss of ten of her beloved children. We would smile ruefully as we observed that she was so much more than a baby-maker confined to her home and family. We would, I think, be gleeful that we have finally helped her come out to appreciation for the strong woman she was.
We wouldn't agree on the story we chose for Job's heritage and hers, but it wouldn't really make much difference -- not to me anyway -- because that is all background for appreciating this long overlooked woman's story.
Thanks for this. I hope you check occasionally for reviews of your book so you'll see these comments.
