Publisher's Summary

Perhaps no other Biblical tale penetrates so deeply into the everyday travails of the common person as The Book of Job. It tells the story of a righteous man beset by torment and misfortune through no fault of his own. This parable of bad things happening to a good person addresses the eternal question of why we are here, and why we suffer. This translation is by Stephen Mitchell.

Critic Reviews

"This translation finds the timeless center of the Job saga, and the reader interprets it with just the right combination of anger, eloquence, and faith. This is a text which was meant to be heard." ( Harvey Cox, Harvard Divinity School)

Phenominal !!!

Excellent spiritual and tremendously inspirational reading of an ancient text. Gives wonderful perspective for our daily lives in light of true faith and devotion to righteousness. An absolute must for older children and certainly for adults. Enjoy!

Good translation, well-narrated, mediocre audio

This is an exceptional translation of Job, and Peter Coyote does an excellent narration. However, the audio quality is only fair.
