WRITE: Write a 3 page double-spaced, 1-inch margins, 12 pt. Times New Roman font essay on the following topic:
In his commentary on the Book of Job, Michael D. Guinan states: “Problems are solved. Mysteries are lived.” (Guinan, Michael D. Job. Collegeville Bible Commentary, Vol. 19. Collegeville, MN: The Order of St Benedict, 1986, p. 80) How do the Book of Job, Lamentations, and the Gospel of Mark argue that suffering is a mystery? (You might like to go back to Module 1.7 and relisten to the lecture on Mystery.)
Cite material quoted or paraphrased from the reading assignment to support your argument. The paper needed a Works Cited page. You also need page numbers when citing a source like Fischer.
