VALLEY FORGE, PA (ABNS 03/13/2024)— Dr. Paige Lanier Chargois, a respected voice in spiritual literature, invites readers on an illuminating journey with her latest book, “Living a Job Faith: From Tried to Triumphant.” Captivated and inspired by Job’s odyssey in the Hebrew Bible, Chargois delves into this timeless tale of unwavering faith in the face of adversity and emerges with profound insights about coping with the challenges and tribulations of modern-day life.

Chargois deftly weaves together themes of lament, awe, forgiveness and reconciliation through vivid storytelling and insightful analysis.

Author, editor and assistant pastor of Berean Baptist Church in Nashville, Tennessee, the Reverend Olivia M. Cloud calls Chargois’s latest work “fit ammunition for our faith arsenal as we search for answers amid suffering.”

With more than four decades of ministry experience, Chargois brings a wealth of wisdom to her exploration of Job’s narrative.
