1626 Jeremias Drexel Jobas Bible JOB + Palaestra Sin Demons Satan
“All wizards and witches are the professed and sworn enemies of God. O prince, O King, let not witches live!” (Clark)
– Jeremias Drexel
Jeremias Drexel was a 17th-century Jesuit writer and preacher, who ultimately gave up preaching to teach and write. His works surround Christian living, truth, and virtues of life. This book, “Jobas” is Drexel’s commentary and explanation of the Book of Job, the life Job lived, and the decisions he made towards God. Each chapter deals with a different aspect of the story of Job
•Job’s wealth, knowledge and dignity
•Faithfulness lead to fortune
•Prophecy, martyrdom, patience
•Unhappiness, but trusting
•Associating with grumbling, negative friends (a common topic in other Drexel works such as ‘Nicetas’)
•Job resisting the devil
This small book is also paired with another of Drexel’s works – ‘Palaestra Christiana’. This work is a series of short homilies with scripture references of the balance between temptation and resistance to sin.
An important devotional for the Christian reader.
