Dear Therapon Family,
We trust everyone is doing well and staying safe during this difficult time. Therapon has suspended all in-house seminars for the present but all our distance-ed material is still available for home study and CEU credit . We look forward to resuming our seminars as soon as soon as safely possible.

The reader should be prepared to have some of his or her deeply held religious teaching challenged by the word of God.

This book is an attempt to answer some of life's most challenging questions. Together we will examine Questions from Job.
