"The Trial of Job"

Follows the Biblical account of Job.

The Trial of Job includes 20 original songs (lyrics, music and orchestration). Set in a modern day courtroom, The Trial of Job follows the Biblical account of Job with poetic license, dashes of humor and contemporary flair. Prosecutor Lucifer Lex and Defense Attorney Al Mighty have stipulated to a musical rendition of the Biblical Story of Job. Job, his wife, children and friends are summoned to testify. The testimony is presented in a variety of musical styles, from classical to jazz. The role of the jury, the audience in this case, is to examine the nature and power of Faith in the midst of suffering and, in the end, to decide whether or not Faith wins out in The Trial of Job. Indeed, this deliberation may take a lifetime!
