From the simple and beautiful language of the prose tale, to the verbal fireworks of the dialogue between Job and his friends, to the haunting beauty of the poem on wisdom and the sublime poetics of the divine speeches, this book provides an intense encounter with the aesthetic resources of Hebrew verbal art. In this brilliant new study, Carol Newsom illuminates the relation between the aesthetic forms of the book and the claims made by its various characters. Her innovative approach makes possible a new understanding of the unity of the book of Job; she rejects the dismantling of the book by historical criticism and the flattening of the text that characterizes certain final form readings.

Carol A. Newsom is Charles Howard Candler Professor of Old Testament at Candler School of Theology, Emory University. She was the 2011 President of the Society of Biblical Literature and is on the editorial advisory board for the Old Testament Library series by Westminster John Knox Press.
