A Chink in the Armor: A Short Story of Job From Evolved Publishing and D. Robert Pease, award-winning author of the "Noah Zarc" series, "Joey Cola: Dream Warriors," and "Shadow Swarm," comes a short story of the ancient tale of one man’s quest for glory, and the dragon who stands in his way. [Epic Fantasy, Dragon Adventure, Christian Fantasy, Short Story]
Blessed by the gods, Job has never lost a battle. He has triumphed over every challenge from man and nature. Arrogant? Yes, but he's invincible. Or is he?
The book of Job is one of my favorites in the Bible. The idea that a man could go through such misery, the loss of his family, boils all over his body, friends who berate him, and still not lose his faith just amazes me. ~ I found myself imagining what happened in Job’s youth to create the man we see in the Bible. At one point God challenges Job and describes an awesome creature that could only be described as a dragon. ~ Thus the genesis of this story. I hope you like it.

  • Modern twist on a classic

    By Topsues
    I enjoyed reading this short story. D.Robert Pease has managed to turn a small part of the bible into a modern piece of work, that gives the reader an insite into part of our bible that many don't read anymore or find it difficult to understand. I know I am the latter. The author managed to transcribe the emotions of Job, which is a credit to him for having that talent. I understood the thought provoking piece, in a much better way. Thank you
