A book in the Ketuvim or Writings section of the Tanakh, The Book of Job is the first poetic book of the Old Testament. In a mix of prose and poetry, it addresses the issue of theodicy by examining God’s justice in terms of humanity’s suffering. In doing so, it takes a look at a variety of perspectives. Renown for its literary qualities, it is said that Tennyson called it the greatest poem of all times – ancient and modern.
