This book openly reveals Job's existential struggles to throw off the logic of a reward based mentality that believes God must be good to us, and give us "things". Job's lesson is precisely the opposite; God owes us nothing, but gives us a life in which there is great risk, much suffering, vulnerability, and the possibility of a bold faced affirmation of living in relationship with the divine. In, At the Scent of Water, Gerald Janzen follows Job's journey from prosperity, through calamity and bitter anguish, to an encounter with God's presence in a rainstorm that renews the earth and his own appetite for life.
