  1. Hey, Paul! I'm a big fan of the show and also a Christian pastor. And I have to report that the young lady's summary of the book of Job was correct at first, but way off at the end. Job is the oldest book in the Bible, written before the book of Genesis. It also is written in a poetic style, like The Iliad. The book of Job tells the story of a man named Job who was faithful to God no matter what. Satan posits to God that if Job were not so blessed, if his life were not so good, he would no longer praise God. God gave Satan permission to test Job's faith. In spite of losing his wife, children, property, belongings, health, and reputation, job remained faithful to God even when he was on the verge of death. The bulk of the book consists of conversations between Job and four other individuals who are contemplating God and life, and are trying to figure out why God had allowed or caused Job to suffer. In the end, God speaks to Job and commends his faith, meanwhile also putting the other four men in check. Because Job was faithful, God restored Job's position, possessions, and family twice over. At no point did Job kill anyone or exact any kind of revenge. For me there is no solid correlation between the Job of the Bible and the Jobe of The Lawnmower Man. Job was an affluent, successful man whose life was turned upside down for a while. Jobe was a strange, estranged man whose life was ruined and ultimately ended by another's tampering. Perhaps their only commonality is that they were chastised by people in their community, but I think that's grasping at straws. Thanks for another great show! Keep up the good work! -Brian
