Howdy, folks! Rev. Jimmy Trivitt, host of the renowned television show "Lifestyles of the Rich and Faithful", interviews cattle & oil tycoon Joe Bob Worth and his lovely wife Mary Belle at their Texas ranch. Rev. Trivitt preaches the gospel of health and wealth, but after watching this fellow, you might start reckoning that he's not exactly in the preaching business for the glorification of the Lord, but perhaps for the glorification of his wallet to siphon off a few of those donations he asks his viewers to send to P.O. Box 666 in New Haven, Tennessee.
Joe Bob is an unwavering devoté of Jesus Christ. However, Joe Bob starts getting a few pieces of bad news: the cattle die, the oil wells burn, his family is disgraced, he gets miserably sick, his belovèd wife abandons him.
An elderly matron comes by and say how his misfortune is God's punishment for some secret, hidden sin which he needs to confess to her (apparently to fill up on gossip material).
Another college boy tries to get him to deem God a nonsensical fairy tale, attributing both his prosperity and demise to mere chance and happenstance. But Joe Bob knows God to be the true Creator and Sustainer of the universe, and the conversation with the college boy only strengthens his own understanding of how indeed God is in control and cares for Joe Bob even through his apparent misery.
God rewards Joe Bob for his devotion and blesses him materially as a reward. Joe Bob's family is restored and his possessions are restored far beyond what he ever had before.
Joe Bob, a play by T. M. Williams was performed by the Good News Players of Clairmont Hills Baptist Church as part of a dinner theatre. There were three performances on 30 April, 1 May, and 2 May 1999. Joe Bob is roughly based on the plight of the Biblical persona Job—with a bit of dramatic licence taken.
The performance was directed by Joyce Ray. Jennifer Stone and Craig
Eleazer were the sound and lighting technicians.
