Job the Film

A few months ago I had the opportunity to watch this new film on Job.  Now, after waiting for several months, the movie finally became available for download in just the last few weeks.  The best way to describe the film is that it is powerful.  The style is poetry set against thematic illustrations and music.  The narrator and author is Pastor John Piper.

The main thrust of the movie captures the book of Job well: We can’t know the mind of God, but we know His ways are above ours, and that He works all things to good for those who love Him and are called according to His great and mighty purpose.  The hidden things of God are His own.  These truths are beautifully illustrated in Piper’s adaptation of the book.

I recommend taking some time to watch the movie.  It moved me greatly to reconsider the wisdom and awesome providence of the God we worship.

There is a trailer below, and the full movie can be found on itunes or here.
