It tells the story of a righteous man beset by torment and misfortune through no fault of his own.

"A balanced look at the options."
The story of Job is one of unjust things happening to a good man. Yet after losing everything, Job - though confused, angry, and questioning God - refuses to reject his faith, although he challenges some central aspects of it. Rabbi Harold S. Kushner examines the questions raised by Job's experience, questions that have challenged wisdom seekers and worshippers for centuries. What kind of God permits such bad things to happen to good people? Why does God test loyal followers? Can a truly good God be all-powerful?
"Insightful, informative and interesting"
As we know from our own experience: bad things often happen to good people, even when they are fully aligned with God. So what gives? Job explores this paradox, calling into question the fundamental lessons we learn in the first 700 pages of Scripture. Each book after Esther in the Christian canon of the Hebrew Scriptures is a recapitulation into the main narrative. Job takes us back to the start, to the time of Abraham, and it raises serious questions.
"Fantastic context and interpretation"

"Good Biography, Fine narrator"
"Trump Vows to 'Break' NAFTA, but Many Workers May Owe Their Jobs to Free Trade" is from the March 30, 2016 edition of PRI's The World.
Plagued by disease and living with multiple losses in his life, Job was also accused of sin by his friends. He asks the eternal question, "How can a man be righteous before God?" and he laments that there is no mediator between man and God. It wasn't until Jesus came that the mediator, the solution for man's unrighteousness, was revealed.
Almost one in four American working adults has a job that pays less than a living wage. Conventional wisdom says that’s how the world has to work. Bad jobs with low wages, minimal benefits, little training, and chaotic schedules are the only way companies can keep costs down and prices low. If companies were to offer better jobs, customers would have to pay more or companies would have to make less. But in The Good Jobs Strategy, Zeynep Ton, a professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management, makes the compelling case that even in low-cost settings, leaving employees behind - with bad jobs - is a choice, not a necessity.
