Job, a great guy, loses everything.
His friends say it’s because of some secret sin but Job insists he’s innocent and we the readers know that he is because we’ve overheard God say so.
Job ends up demanding an explanation from God. He doesn’t get one. But he does get a reality check when God speaks to him from the whirlwind.
At the end of the book Job’s fortunes are restored and the friends admit they were wrong but Job knows now that it could all be taken away from him in an instant.
But he decides to serve God anyway.
