Description: The book of Job is often discussed as a theodicy - an attempt to "justify the ways of God to man." In this remarkable rereading of Job, the author brings new light to this familiar account, showing instead that God invites Job to give up the traditional Deuteronomic logic of reward-punishment for a life affirming strategy of risk-reward. From this perspective, affirmation of life in the face of all its vulnerabilities is the path to true participation in the mystery of existence.
