Publisher's Description

The Book of Job deals with a variety of issues, on levels both superficial and profound. It has been the subject of scholarly debate and analysis ever since its inclusion in the Hebrew Bible. Scholars and theologians have set forth a variety of theories to explain the "human condition" and justify the actions of the Divine toward humanity. The material differences in attempts by scholars to translate the Book of Job are evidence that these theories cannot be supported. The author of the Book of Job employs a unique intertextual code. The code hides a sophisticated agenda that includes not simply the interaction of the Divine and humanity, but also the quality of this interaction. The programmatic investigation by the author reflects also contemporary politico-religious conflicts among Jews of 2nd Century BCE Palestine. Dr. Wilson uncovers the intertextual cipher and opens the window to a single coherent solution to the meaning and intent of the Book of Job.
