    Job The Book of Job is not only the finest expression of the Hebrew poetic genius; it must also be accorded a place among the greatest masterpieces of world literature. Why has Job received this judgment? What do we think when natural disasters injure and kill? He seeks to humble himself in dust and ashes.

    The prologue and epilogue are the prose narrative. What happens to the wicked man? Many of them are good answers and they may help us understand parts of the question. The Talmud concludes that it was for this reason that Job was punished. He is the supreme being.

The Book of Job consists of two separate portions. But he must not complain because he is puny and powerless. While its competitors have closed by the dozens, it has survived on castaways — from publishers, reviewers, the public and even other booksellers.
