Description/Abstract

Although Job has been universally admired, his encounters with evil have met with diverse and often contradictory interpretations. In contrast to the tradition that exalts "patient Job," recent scholars have focused attention on the
"impatient Job" who questions divine justice. I will suggest that
Job is essentially a book about questions and assertions, a book
that leads us to consider the significance of theological questioning.
