Product note

No matter how bad you've got it, Job had it worse. His family killed, his body covered with boils, his property destroyed, and his faith decimated, Job cried out to God, who was responsible for all his troubles. God answered Job from the decidedly un-lectern-like podium of a whirlwind, and delivered a message about the ways of God to man that still echoes with pathos today. --Michael Joseph Gross

Short Desription

"God is our home but many of us have strayed from our native land.  The venerable authors of these Spiritual Classics are expert guides--may we follow their directions home."  --Archbishop Desmond Tutu

How can a just God abandon His creatures to suffering?  How do we reconcile our notions of divine goodness and omnipotence with the fact that the universe is visibly unfair?  Sooner or later, these questions confront anyone who attempts to lead a life of faith.  And nowhere have they been articulated with greater drama, poignancy, and despairing fury than in the Biblical parable of the blamelessly unfortunate Job.

With a new Preface by Cynthia Ozick, nominated for the National Book Award for her book The Puttermesser Papers
