Predictability And Dominion: An Economic Commentary On Job

Predictability And Dominion: An Economic Commentary On Job
Author Name: 

First, the format of the book is like no other in the Bible. It is a series of debates. The characters are like stage figures in a play. We hear one, then another. Most of the book is dialogue. It is not poetry, as the Psalms are. It is not aphorisms, as the Book of Proverbs is.
Because of this, I use the present tense to analyze it. In the other commentaries, I use the past tense. But the dialogue in this book forces us to think of the book as a stage play being performed in front of us.
