Publisher's Summary

In this short work, G.K. Chesterton writes with characteristic vivacity as he explores the compelling paradoxes of the book of Job, as found in the Hebrew Scriptures. Armed with keen precision and incisive wit, Chesterton revels in the reversions of expectation found in this story, particularly regarding the character of God. Indeed Chesterton names the God of Job a blasphemer, an atheist...and identifies the loneliness of God as the central idea of the Hebrew Scriptures. Listeners will delight in the twists and turns of Chesterton's thought as he illuminates one of the classic pieces of ancient literature with genuine passion and deft insight.

My favorite Chesterton work

Please don’t let the brevity keep you from purchasing this. Sarah Bacaller’s rendition is remarkable and beautifully enhances some of Chesterton’s most insightful and eloquent work. I’m so glad to have found this.
