The Book of Job: Reflections on Suffering from Living Through the Carr Fire
The Book of Job: Perspective on Suffering from Living Through the Carr Fire
by Tony Stoltzfus

Find the goodness of God in your experiences of suffering and loss with this on-line course from Tony Stoltzfus. After the total loss of his home in the devastating Carr Fire in 2018, Tony's journals on meeting God in the midst of the experience were enjoyed and shared by thousands on Facebook. Based on his meditations on the Book of Job in those difficult days, this course was filmed in front of the ashes of his home, under a sky white with smoke from the still-burning fire. The course features:

  • Six video sessions filmed exclusively for this course
  • An account of the terrifying first few days of the fire from the perspective of an evacuee, including the largest recorded fire tornado in history
  • Tony's highly-personal journal entries written in the month after the fire
  • A set of Bible study outlines for the key questions raised by the book of Job
  • Photos Tony shot before, during and after the fire that illustrate the story
You'll be amazed to discover the hidden clues to how God was working for good in Job's life, and how the book of Job--the oldest in the bible--actually speaks of the grace of God and looks forward to Jesus incarnation.

This short, practical volume offers a wealth of great tips and techniques for constructing excellent coaching questions. While not a coaching book per se (it is targeted at small group coaches or leaders), How to Ask Great Questionsoffers an in-depth look at many of the bread and butter asking techniques coaches use: open and closed questions, probing questions, asking about what's significant, and bringing out people's inner thoughts and true feelings.

The best feature of the book is that it includes example after example of great questions created for specific scenarios or situations. Any coach (and especially beginners, coaches in training or small group coaches) can benefit from having How to Ask Great Questions handy.
