Book Reviews

As Rich As Job, by Rev. C. Bijl. Kampen, The Netherlands: VanDenBerg, 1989, 91pp., $10.95 paper. Translated from the Dutch by F. Vogelzang. [Reviewed by Lois Kregel.] It is a rare thing to find a book that deals with the problem of the suffering of God’s people as biblically as this one does.

Appreciation for the SB on Tape We receive The Standard Bearer on tape (as well as in written form). The family listens to the tape while they are working. It is easier for the younger children to follow and comprehend the printed article while listening to the tape. We pass on the tapes to an elderly couple whose eye-sight is failing. We really like the way that the articles of the SB are read on the tapes (by Mr. Ken Rietema – DJE). His work is very much appreciated here in Burnie. We also are thankful that we may keep...

The critical test comes in the heat of battle. The inspired...
