This course addresses difficult and challenging and enduring (on the front pages of every newspaper!) issues raised by the book of Job through a careful reading of the biblical text as well as selected secondary interpretations and responses (some old, some new). The dialogue that comprises the majority of the biblical text of Job will hopefully be mirrored in online class interaction.
