The Message of Job
By (author) David Atkinson
Message of Job by David Atkinson
Book DescriptionWhy do people suffer? What is God's role in suffering? How can we help those who suffer? The fact of suffering in the world challenges us with its questions. The book of Job is all about human suffering. Its portrayal of one man's sufferings, the ineffective responses of his friends, and his struggle for faith and understanding mirrors our own experiences in the world. David Atkinson offers a pastoral exploration of Job's story. His compelling exposition shows the power of the book of Job to reach into our human situation and to engage with our human needs. It offers, he believes, the strong comfort which comes from knowing that someone else has been there before. The message of Job is both a comfort to us in our own suffering and a model for our ministry to others in pain.

Thinking the Art of Management, Hardback (October 2007)» View all books by David Atkinson
Management-science or management-art? This text addresses this question through a philosophy of an art-related management practice, contributing a paradigmatic thesis of management practiced as an art-form. It goes beyond the extension of aesthetic understanding to management and organization study to aid understanding of management.
