Perhaps no other Biblical tale penetrates so deeply into the everyday travails of the common person as The Book of Job. It tells the story of a righteous man beset by torment and misfortune through no fault of his own. This parable of bad things happening to a good person addresses the eternal question of why we are here, and why we suffer. This translation is by Stephen Mitchell.

Stephen Mitchell’s translation is probably not the most accurate but is easy to follow and Peter Coyote does an excellent narration that gives life to this book.
