Job the Film

Job the Film has just been released on iTunes ($4.99). Here’s the summary of the project found at jobthefilm.com:

Job lost everything: his wealth, his health, and his ten children. All swept away in one satanic storm. Reduced to a heap of flesh, ashes, and tears—rebuked by friends and jeered by strangers—righteous Job wrestled over the purpose and presence of God in the midst of unbearable pain.

Originally published by Desiring God in 2008 as a 128-page hardcover book, JŌB retold the biblical story through the beautiful, compassionate poetry of John Piper and the stunning illustrations of Chris Koelle.

Out of print shortly after its release, the story of JŌB is now being reintroduced through a new adaptation of moving artwork, music, and poetry: JŌB is an independently produced full-length (45 min.) motion graphics animated movie.

Through John Piper‘s own gripping narration of the poem, music by J. Aaron Greene, original illustrations by Chris Koelle, animation by Danny McNight, and line production by Will Parker, we are invited to revel in God’s sovereign and surprisingly joyful purposes in allowing exquisite suffering in the lives of his saints. This story of human suffering and the sovereignty of God is artfully brought to new life as a deeply moving resource especially for those experiencing great suffering and loss.

Here’s the 2-minute trailer:


Looking forward to watching the whole thing with our children as Julia and I shepherd their hearts in the vision of a good God who is sovereign over all, including our suffering.
