9780804733380: In Turns of Tempest: A Reading of Job with a Translation

This study approaches the Book of Job as a book, as a work of literary art. Drawing on deconstruction s pleasure in indeterminacy, the author asks how the text of Job plays, how it discloses its patterns of words in all their multiple possibilities. Reviews The translation is fresh, engaging, and free-flowing. It is amazing how an unfamiliar sentence structure can open a well-known phrase to a new reading...The commentary not only examines the dynamics of the narrative and significance of the speeches, but also contains Good s own argument with literary points made by some of the other prominent commentators on Job...The language Good uses to communicate his insights is inclusive and lively. All of this serves to make the book very readable, in fact, enjoyable. Theological Studies Good fills his dazzling kaleidoscope of explication with strong and intelligent historical, rhetorical, and linguistic references, citations, and allusions. Religion & Literature A brilliant, exhaustive study...Insights into the meaning of the Hebrew of the Book of Job are abundant, and observations about irony, sarcasm, and wordplays abound...One cannot help but be challenged and stimulated by these ...richly endowed, carefully researched, and well-written pages.
