About this product
- DescriptionWhy do we suffer? And what sort of answer could satisfy our disquiet? After being struck down by a series of disasters that destroy his property and kill most of his family, and after being afflicted by an atrocious skin disease, Job is moved to enquire into the cause of his suffering. His friends blame Job's own supposed impiety for his troubles. Job blames God. This dramatic story from ancient times details the row between Job and his friends, which ends when God himself arrives. Readers down the ages have been shocked and delighted by this surprising and intriguing tale. The American Standard Version translation, introduced by philosopher Jocelyn Almond, has been typeset in the beautiful Doves Type of the early twentieth century, designed for the quality, hand-made editions of a private press. Doves Type was made in only one size, the size used in this book.
