The Book of Job Explained for Today’s Reader

The Book of Job Explained for Today’s Reader February 21, 2017


I love this analogy. Certainly Facebook is the place in our time where one’s so-called friends aggrivate a person’s suffering by commenting on it at length in “conversations” that are in fact more like independent monologues, or indeed diatribes.

Perhaps it would be a useful activity to try to paraphrase the Book of Job into a Facebook format? Is that something that a professor should do, or would it work better as a student project?

What do you think of the analogy?
