Of all the books in the Bible, the book of Job troubles me most. How could so many bad things happen to such a good man? How could a loving God allow it? In Joab’s Fire, Lynn Squire tells the story of Job in a new setting—one that allowed me to relate to the story’s timeless themes in new ways. The accompanying discussion questions place the story firmly in context with the whole counsel of Scripture. Joab’s Fire eloquently displays the eternal truth that God’s light shines most brightly in darkness.

In Joab’s Fire, a young family faces one heart ache after another as they carve out a life on the Canadian prairie. The Blacks lose their only son, their home is destroyed by fire, and Joab suffers a debilitating illness. Like Job in the Old Testament, we wonder how such a good man could suffer so much. Then, through the darkness, we see God’s abiding grace.
Lynn has written a novel that beautifully portrays how our Heavenly Father raises his children from the ashes. When the world robs us of all we hold dear, God returns it to us a hundred fold. Each chapter of Joab’s Fire concludes with a series of Bible study questions designed to help us get a clearer understanding of how God works in our lives and helps us to face every tragedy that may come our way.

Joab's Fire will stir your heart and soul as the NWMP officer seeks to find God's will for his life without realizing that is what he is seeking. Lynn Squire is one of the finest writers I've ever come in contact with. Her writing mirror's her life as she writes for the Christian readers, unafraid to show her love and trust in the God she serves.

In today’s culture, where materialism and wealth are thought to be the signs of success, Joab’s Fire and the Bible study accompanying the story clearly define the truth that it is not what you have but Who you have that makes one triumph in this life. Lynn Squire uses the story of Joab and his family and friends to show that in all things, God is ruler over our lives. Joab’s Fire is filled with examples of how God uses setbacks and unthinkable tragedies to work in our lives. More importantly, the story shows how, as Christians, our responses to unexpected calamities affect those around us who do not trust in a sovereign God—often making us the only example of Christ’s goodness they may ever see. In the study, Lynn uses scripture to allow God’s healing truth to seep into the hearts and minds of her reader, drawing them closer to the One who leads us not only to the top of the mountain, but through the many valleys where we learn to trust and allow Him to guide.
