Scheindlin's translation of the Book of Job is nuanced and conveys the deeper meanings of one of the world's great poems. The question of suffering, theodicy, the power of God are all there. The footnotes and introduction are enlightening.On pages 25 and 26,Scheindlin is at his best when he points out that there are no answers to the causes of grief and suffering. A. Eric Rosen

The translation and notes enriched my reading of this great work. The translation is elegant; the notes clarify my reading from other translations. I want now to read more of Professor Scheindlin's work. The reader will want also to read Professor Robert Alter's recent translation of Job.
