Sustained in Suffering by the Saga of Job
Normally, when we consider the Reformers, we consider the theological revolution they brought about; this consideration is good and right. One aspect of the Reformers we often skip over, however, is that these men were fundamentally pastors. As such, the Reformers lent great pastoral contributions that we can receive much encouragement from especially in the midst of our suffering. CJ Mahaney looks to the Reformation and to the book of Job for such encouragement.
C.J. Mahaney serves as the Senior Pastor for Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville and is the author of several books, including Living the Cross Centered Life, Humility: True Greatness, Don’t Waste Your Sports, and Sex, Romance and the Glory of God. C.J. and his wife, Carolyn, have three married daughters, one son, and twelve grandchildren. They reside in Louisville, Kentucky but C.J. cheers for his hometown teams the Washington Redskins, Nationals, Wizards, and University of Maryland basketball.
