His disastrous circumstances overwhelmed him. His boil-covered body tormented him. His so-called friends belittled him. His distraught wife discouraged him. Even God seemed to desert him—letting Satan have his devilish way. And Job sat patiently by enduring it all. Doesn’t really seem like a portrait of a hero. Or does it?

But a careful study of Job’s life will convince us that this is another of God’s amazing men with heroic character qualities worth emultating.”
