"JOB the Film" Released on iTunes

Why do bad things happen to good people?

Few questions are more ancient. Job was blameless and upright, he feared God and turned away from evil (Job 1:1). And yet he suffered affliction at every turn. He was laid low in misery.

A few years ago Desiring God published a final printing of John Piper's interpretive poem of this Old Testament story, along with new illustrations by artist Christopher Koelle. Though the book itself is out-of-print, producer Will Parker recently assembled a small team to create their own animated film from this work. Watch the trailer:

You can now get this full movie on iTunes for $4.99, or if you would like it for your church, fill out this form to schedule a free showing. To order some art prints and learn more, visit Jobthefilm.com.
