The book of Job is a vivid testimony to pain, a plea for justice, and a wrenching theological debate about suffering and its causes. Central to this debate are questions about the roles that God and humans play in causing human suffering and whether divine - human relationships can proceed in the midst of overwhelming anguish. Like a riddle, the text grasps readers minds and emotions, inviting them to participate in Job s story and to work toward their own solution to the dilemmas of both Job and his friends.
