Dr. Reid is a teacher's teacher.
As a professor of Theological Studies at Free Will Baptist Bible College, he understands that learners "get it" in different ways.
uses numerous tools to plant truth in the heart of the learner.
uses logic, definitions, poems, analogies and action items to explore the depths of what integrity looks like from the premier man of integrity, Job.
The book does for us what God did for Satan; it makes us consider "my servant Job."
Think of it!
Job 31 provides us with one of the earliest profiles of what the fear of God looks like incarnate - a set of personal convictions not borrowed from some inherited tradition or imposed by some law code, but imbedded within a man's soul through his
friendship with God. p.8
shows what integrity looks like on the outside and on the inside.
What is it that a man like Job believes, and more importantly acts upon, that made him a man that God would commend and even defend?
Job does not have a public life and a private life that are different.
is the same man in private as he
is in public.
helps us see what we might have missed in our general reading of Job.
