Synopsis

The Book of Job Why Do the Innocent Suffer? by Na Na

Job is probably one of the best-known and most touching characters from the Bible. The Book of Job is the first great work of ancient literature to explore in depth the problem of undeserved suffering. Such is the enormous influence of this poetic masterpiece that it is now commonplace to refer to the patience of Job. This volume combines the text of the Book of Job with essays that show why the trials of Job still resonate so powerfully today.
