Job’s adversary wants him to curse God to his face and does everything in his power to bring him to that crisis. This chapel will consider what it takes for Job, when he is stripped of all conceivable comfort, to endure his desolation without cursing God.


Melissa Schubert

When Melissa Schubert was in sixth grade, her grandpa, because he was retiring from the pastorate and because he loved her, let her plunder his book-filled study. Loving books, words, and ideas has been core to her love of God and others ever since. She now spends her days reading and discussing great literature with her students and colleagues at Biola University's Torrey Honors Institute. 

Her academic specialization is Renaissance English poetry, which persuades her that the world is infinitely interesting and that good words enrich the Christian life. She finds regular confirmation that this is so, whether in her garden or on her bike, with her church or beside her nieces and nephews, who, along with her students and colleagues, help her pursue language and imagination keen enough to unfold this terrestrial life and strong enough to hope for the life of the world to come.

INTERESTING FACT:  She biked England coast to coast a few summers ago (it was,by her own admission, one of the country’s narrowest points).
