Coffee with Job 57 – Final Words

Job 19:23-24 – Job wants his final words to be recorded in stone – he thinks he is dying. What would you want on your headstone? What would be your final words? Do words really matter? Do they last? The photo is of Robert Murray McCheyne’s grave in St Peters.

Coffee with Job 56 – Defriended!

Robert Murray McCheyne and St Peters


  1. Dear David,
    I wanted to send you a note of thanks for this study, because the timeliness of it was/is God ordained. I have learned so much that I never saw in this book. But, more importantly, what to say and what NOT to say to someone grieving a loss. Last month, on Oct. 3rd, the day before his birthday, the young adult son of dear friends took his own life. “Shattered” doesn’t even begin to describe it. As I was trying to decide what to write in my note to our friends, (besides simply “no words!”), I was able to find words from the wonderful commentary of Rev Ash that you recommended we use for this study. Weeks later, when they were able to look at all the sympathy cards, our friends sent my husband an email saying that they were deeply comforted by what I had written. I would never have known what to say in a situation like this before going through this wonderful study. So, thank you so much for your book recommendation and all the work you do to help us find the hope of Christ in Job.

    In Christ alone,
