Author's Notes:

I've just finished reading through Job again, and golly do I love that book. I just have such vivid emotional pictures forming in my mind as I read, it makes me wish I was a filmmaker so that I could show the rest of the world what I was seeing.

Well, I decided that, while I'm not a filmmaker, I can write, so I've embarked on drafting some fiction to flesh out the story. I'm starting at the point that Job's friends first encounter him, writing from their perspective. They are very confused by it all, they don't even really know how to help their friend, and they worry that the world which makes sense under God's providence might somehow be falling apart.
