"Obviously, Christian believers and literature buffs familiar with the general tenor of Job's story will feel more at home reading this book. But I hope the message will resonate well with skeptics and the unchurched as well. ...hopefully, the book draws in many spiritual seekers who are yearning for a better way to think about God, particularly his transcendence." - Dwight J Olney

 "If you've faced a challenging trial and felt forsaken, this book is a must-read. It offers a transformative perspective on suffering, providing a blueprint for seeing God with fresh eyes." - Tara C. Allred
