Job would previously have responded to despair of God as his friends and Elihu responded to him in his misery and despair. A chasm opened between him and them only because of a disaster that Job alone knew to be undeserved. The outcome of the drama is that the collapse of a complacent view of the divine economy can be overcome.

Senseless calamity loses some of its demoralizing effect when morale does not depend entirely on the comprehensibility of the phenomena but, rather, on the conviction that they are pervaded by the presence of God. As nature shows, this does not necessarily mean that they are sensible and intelligible. God—the objection runs—asserts His power in reply to a challenge to His moral government. But this sets up a false dichotomy. Through nature, God reveals Himself to Job as both purposive and nonpurposive, playful and uncanny, as evidenced by the monsters He created.

When Job recognizes in the God of nature, with His fullness of attributes, the very same God revealed in his own individual destiny, the tumult in his soul is stilled. The manifestation of his peace with God, of his renewed spiritual vigor, is that he reconstitutes his life. He is a vessel into which blessings can be poured; he who wished to have died at birth now fathers new sons and daughters.

That, in addition to answering the demands of simple justice, is the significance of the epilogue which many critics have belittled as crass. This concept of God contradicts not only that of the Wisdom of the Proverbs in which the principle of just individual retribution is iterated in its simplest form but that of the Torah and the Prophets as well. The religious sensibility apparently absorbs or even affirms the contradictions embodied in these books.

That may be because these contradictions are perceived to exist in reality. Sometimes they pound at him and his "beast" roars in anguish. When he violates his destined bride, Rora, he feels disgusted and shamed. But being near her silences his beast, and he craves the presence of another, one that doesn't stir up his beast. Rora enjoys being with Rydan. Before long, the two are inseparable.

But Rydan is the Guardian of the Fountain, and Rora possesses her own mystical magics. Can they trust one another completely to save their world without destroying it? This sixth in the series was highly anticipated.

A wonderful thing about this series is that even though its a certain characters story, the others still play a role. You don't see them fading into the woodwork. As the Island of Nightfall gets ready to name their deity, we are left with anticipation for the next story of the seventh brother. I love this series! Sep 24, July rated it really liked it Shelves: home-library. The story of Rydan the sixth son of Destiny. This story brings together the rest of the books for me.

Rydan was just a little strange to me, I thought he was OCD or slightly Autistic, because he didn't want to be touched.

Between the two of them and their secrets they make an awesome couple. Great story Sep 25, Theresa rated it it was amazing. I have to admit I did scan some of the passages that were straight from the previous book.

I love finally seeing how Rydan lives in his mysterious underground. The whole guardian system is interesting and I love its reorganization. And Madam Mist is a nicely mysterious touch. Fave scenes: riding the mining cart, Rora taking Rydan his dinner, the vein of marble and breaking the mirror.

When I saw this book it reminded me how much I had enjoyed reading the others in the series and decided to pick up where I had left off. Now that I have once again been in nightfall I am definitely going to finish this series. This story takes place at the same time as The Cat but from a different prospective. Rydans Twin's I Liked this book very much.

Rydan is an interesting character, he tends to be a loner keeping away This is a series I started reading years ago then kinda lost track of. Rydan is an interesting character, he tends to be a loner keeping away from family, yet he cares very much for his brothers. When Rora comes to Nightfall she alone is able to see what torments Rydan, and she is determined to help him. Eight brothers, born in four sets of twins, two years apart to the day they fulfill the Curse of Eight Prophecy.

Now Rydan, the tormented sixth-born son, must find a way to trust his Destined bride, Rora, a woman who possesses her own secret power one that could bring them together or annihilate their world forever. Rydan, the reclusive brother, does not wish to meet his destined bride.

Song of the Sons of Destiny

Very interestingly, this book follows sister Arora, who is attracted to Rydan, and it partially covers some of the events from The Cat book 5 from her viewpoint instead of her sister Amara. This was a great idea, and worked very well by expanding and revealing more information about the brothers and Nightfall. I especially liked that the author continues to intertwine all the stories of everyone in each book, even though the focus is on a particular brother and his destined spouse.

This melding is very skillfully done and more in keeping with reality, even though this is a fantasy series. Very few authors can handle a group ensemble like this. Kudos to Jean Johnson. Apr 15, Cam rated it did not like it. I was curious about this series and since this is the only book in it my library stocked I picked it up.

The writing was quite good and the characters were interesting, though the twins got confusing.

It makes sense that his mate is a fountain seeing as he needs the constant contact to the power in order to feel ' whole'. I may pick up ' The Cat' which is apparently the same story but told from Mara's Rora's twin sister point of view and her romance with Trevan Rydan's twin.

You'd think considering she was with Arora, who is now telling her story, that the author could have changed things around some. Having to read conversations, minor unimportant ones that were in the last book, hence repeated, was so boring. But I did end up liking things once they progressed between Arora and Rydan. Dec 14, Stasha rated it really liked it Shelves: sf-and-fantasy. Arora is now my favorite heroine in the series and Rydan my favorite brother.
