    eBook JB A Play in Verse ePUB ´ Play in PDF ↠ JB A Ó 14th century.co Ó play mobile, verse free, JB A free, Play in ebok, A Play in kindle, JB A Play in Verse MOBII was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed “JB”Based on the biblical story of Job MacLeish takes that story and turns it into a modern day play That catch? JB doesn’t know he’s in the play He doesn’t know the actors are playing God and the Devil or using him to prove how uickly man will turn from God when things go wrongThis is a refreshing take on the story of Job and in the play JB is not just one man but all of humanity Originally published in 1956 the world had already gone through two World Wars and if nothing else was going to shake humanity’s faith in God and justice these wars would JB’s oldest son is killed coming home from the war his ne

    eBook JB A Play in Verse ePUB ´ Play in PDF ↠ JB A Ó 14th century.co Ó play mobile, verse free, JB A free, Play in ebok, A Play in kindle, JB A Play in Verse MOBIJB is a 20th century version of JOB the most referred to book in the Bible This modern masterpiece has all the drama and poignancy of its Old Testament counterpart and it has somewhat a better ending and answers to the uestion about why bad things happen to good folks JB's blinding trust in a God who rewards the good and punished the sinful survives all that happens to him or his family The devil has compassion for him than God and his wife even She first leaves him for his maniacal faith only to return with her answer love The play raises the most troublesome uestion of faith and like the book Job has no faith sustaining answers except 1 the ways of God are mysterious an answer unworthy of the uestion and those whose circumstances most need to know and 2 your answer is the afterlife's rewarding heaven or fire consuming hell There is no answer as God is silent and exists in the regions of one's faith and choice that stems from the free choice God gave us a
