The Book of Job by Stephen Mitchell


The Book of Job is the greatest Jewish work of art and one of the masterpieces of world literature. Its theme is nothing less than human suffering and the transcendence of it; it pulses with moral energy, moral outrage, and deep spiritual insight. Because Job is the archetypal victim, a good man who must suffer for no good reason, his story can serve as the central parable from our post-Holocaust age.

Now the Book of Job has been translated by the eminent translator and scholar Stephen Mitchell. This is the first time ever that the Hebrew verse of Job has been translated into verse in any language, ancient or modern, and the result is a triumph.

This edition contains a brilliant introduction by Mr. Mitchell, which illuminates God's answer from the whirlwind.
