Abstract

92 American Journal of Theology and Philosophy encounter with the Voice from the Whirlwind, Job has experienced “an awaken- ing, a quickening of the person in his relationship with things into a placing of himself with them in reality” (99). i n his prefatory note to b ugbee’s “A Way of r eading the book of Job,” r odick suggests that “the lesson to be learned from the story of Job is the need to step outside quotidian understanding, remaining open to the absolute source of things. The openness embraced by Job leads to a sense of grace, recalling us to our senses” (116, r odick’s emphasis). Portions of the introduction (and the prefaces to the early student mate- rial) duplicate r odick’s discussion in a 2011 essay in The Pluralist, which is disappointing but perhaps explains the occasionally disjointed nature of the editorial notes. The subsection entitled “s ituating b ugbee within the American Tradition” does not deliver on what it promises. This is also unfortunate, and perhaps stems from the slightly hagiographic quality of r odick’s treatment of bugbee. but these are minor criticisms. A variety of readers will find this collec- tion worth their while, and
