About the Movie
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 this ancient 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 motion graphics animated movie. Through John Piper's own gripping narration of the poem, original illustrations by Chris Koelle, music by Aaron Greene, and animation by Danny McNight, 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.
Piper's poem/narration and Koelle's illustrations are truly moving.
Chris' book comes alive with the animation that is added to the original release and Piper, as the author, knows just the right touch in reading the text. I have viewed the movie about 8 times and each time I am brought to tears by the beauty of the artwork work, the true story, and the poetry. everyone needs to see this film to help them with friends or to prepare them for the dark corners of life that are still coming. Amazing animation!
Thank you so much for this.. i've only watched the preview but oh my!!
