The Book of Job
Why does God permit the innocent to suffer and the wicked to thrive? Nowhere has that question been posed more starkly, or with greater poetry and drama, than in The Book of Job. In telling the story of a righteous man who is stripped of all that he loves on the apparent whim of the Creator, Job compels readers to consider the relationship between power and justice, to assess the depth of their own faith, and to put aside the notion of a God that conforms to human hopes imaginings. With a new Preface by the distinguished novelist and essayist Cynthia Ozick, author of The Puttermesser Papers and The Shawl.
