The problem of suffering

This morning a heard a radio preacher say that the book of Job doesn't answer the problem of suffering. I must respectfully disagree. The book of Job does answer the problem of suffering, and the answer is:

There is no answer.
You get no explanation.

Though we read the book and know the back-story, Job did not. He suffered and learned to trust God without an answer to the reason of his suffering.
