January 8: Trying the Patience of Job (Vol. 44, pp. 71-87)

The question asked here is, "What does a pious man do when everything goes wrong and his faith is tested?"

In the context of this series, the answer is that Job is held up as an example of steadfast faith in God under the worst of circumstances.

It wouldn't have occurred to Dr. Eliot that this is just another Old Testament fable designed to reinforce superstitious nonsense.
