When life meets the soul, everyday lessons from the Book of Job, Ivan D. Parke - electronic bk

Within When Life Meets the Soul, Ivan D. Parke challenges believers to dig deeper, asking, "Is spiritual intimacy with God a memory, a reality, or a goal?"The Book of Job chronicles the ruin and recovery of the greatest sufferer before Jesus.

When Life Meets the Soul examines the Book of Job in twenty-four responses, addressing the universal question: "How should I live? Parke's study of Job explains that to live well is to walk with God, whether on mountaintops or through valleys. His spiritual guide is designed for Christians and those seeking to pursue close encounters with God-without hesitation
