Accusation is the unperceived catalyst for this dramatic narrative; Job is framed by the accusation that his self-invested allegiance to God will evaporate if he is exposed to adversity. Job is unaware that this wager against his integrity has taken place. The drama that ensues on an epic scale resonates with universal experiences of human suffering—from Job's searching questions, to the grating interventions of Job's friends, and the sense that human misfortune can seem contingent on the whim of unseen powers.

 

The Book of Job is found in the writings of the Hebrew Bible and is the first book of poetry in the Old Testament. This audiobook is performed by Sarah Bacaller and Denis Daly, and includes a foreword written by Dr. Stephen Curkpatrick.
