The Book of Job: A Biography

Feb 18, 2014

Wednesday, we're joined by religion scholar Mark Larrimore, who's written what he calls a biography of The Book of Job. In it, he traces the story's obscure origins and the ways it has been used by clergy, philosophers and even artists to imagine and reimagine the human and the divine. Larrimore says Job has more puzzles than any other Biblical text, and we'll talk about why he says we have an obligation as a community to retell the story and to explore its questions together.
