This study explains the drama, story and poetry found in Job as well as dealing with the greatest of human struggles: to see theworld's evil honestly and still believe in good. Chapter one is intended to accompany a reading of Job, marking the sections and underlining the main thoughts and their connections. Chapter two the previous observations are ordered and developed treating the structural relation of thebook's parts and expressing the main ideas in the parts and the whole. Chapter three places Job in the context of other ancient literature and considers the time and place of thebook's origin. This book is part of the T&T Clark Study Guide Series. Each book in the series gives the reader a thorough introduction to a particular book of the Bible or the Apocrypha.
