Recording (P)1988 by Audio Literature; Copyright ©1979, 1987 by Stephen Mitchell
"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)
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!
This is an exceptional translation of Job, and Peter Coyote does an excellent narration. However, the audio quality is only fair.
I really enjoyed the experience of hearing Job, as dramatized in this narrative. Hearing the words as presented here adds power to the awesomeness of G*d, as this book always portrays.
The performance really helped me me to what the words really mean to me. 5 stars

I am a Stephen Mitchell devotee and a pragmatic. I love his work in the Homeric ancients so much that I wanted to hear his translation of Job. Does not disappoint. This is a wonderful way to recounter the hopelessness of man, the answer of the fates, and the majesty of God. I know I'll listen t o this many more times in my life, God willing. This is a very good place to turn when life darts it's many and varied arrows at you.
Job puts my trials in perspective. Thank you, Lord. May you ever be above me. I have sent this to my children.
