One final bit of wisdom before we close out our Bible Reading Challenge year...the book of Job aims to take down every last resistance to faith and a living love for God, resistance that often comes when we suffer and "need" answers. How to respond to suffering? How to speak to others when they are crying out? This book serves as a powerful statement to let God be God and go long in his love.

Next up: At Grace we'll be using two books for our spiritual growth, Prepared to Answer by Prof. Mark Paustian and Grace Abounds by Prof. em. Daniel Deutschlander. Check out www.gracedowntown.org and the "Learn and Grow" section for PDF schedules, Bible classes and more podcasts!
