Abstract:

"The Hebrew book of Job is universally acknowledged as an exquisite piece of literary art that ranks among the most outstanding compositions in world literature. Yet it is also widely recognized as an immensely difficult text to understand. In elucidating that ancient text, this inaugural Illuminations commentary by C.L. Seow pays close attention to the reception history of Job, including Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and Western secular interpretations as expressed in theological, philosophical, and literary writings and in the visual and performing arts. Seow offers here a primarily literary-theological interpretation of Job, a new translation, and detailed commentary." -- Inside cover
