Kesuvim: Iyov (Job) [Hardcover]
The Writings - with a commentary anthologized from the Rabbinic writings

Product Description
The Book of Job and the anguished attempts of Job and his comrades to understand the ways of God have perplexed, stimulated, and inspired thinkers and philosophers for thousands of years.

Job is a righteous, wealthy and successful man, yet God allows Satan to bring upon Job almost unbearable calamities. His children and his wealth are all taken from him, and he is wracked with suffering.

The ideas in this Book are at the heart of the age-old question: Why do bad people prosper while good people suffer?

The many messages of the Book are wrapped in enigmas. Job's friends seek to convince his that he is actually a sinner, but they do not convince him. His arguments seem to overpower theirs. One wonders why they do not show him more sympathy. In the end, God Himself comes to blunt Job's challenge.

Job accepts, not because of logic, but because he realizes that he is mortal and cannot understand Divine wisdom or Divine justice.

Ultimately, God grants Job even greater wealth, a fruitful family, and long life.

The messages and concepts of the Book of Job are timeless, and this insightful and enlightening treatment belongs in every home and library.

This new volume includes the universally acclaimed ArtScroll translation. A clear, broad-ranging, graceful commentary.
Newly typeset Hebrew commentaries of Rashi, Radak, and Metzudos. Overviews introducing many of the fundamental questions tackled in this Book - the suffering of the righteous, reward and punishment, the role of Satan - and discussing the enigmatic identity of Iyov himself.
