Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

Job's 'friends' increase in hostility with charges of hypocrisy. Job clings to his evangelical view of grace, and upholds God's perfection, but lapses into self-pity. He then eloquently trounces and disproves the liberal theology of the friends, and proclaims his testimony of salvation.
