Item description for The Betrayal of God: Ideological Conflict in Job (Literary Currents in Biblical Interpretation) by David Penchansky...
In this book, David Penchansky examines the inconsistencies between Job's beliefs and his actions. Adapting the theories of neo-Marxist/postmodernist literary critics Fredric Jameson and Pierre Macherey, Penchansky traces ideological and theological conflicts in Israelite society.
The Literary Currents in Biblical Interpretation series explores current trends within the discipline of biblical interpretation by dealing with the literary qualities of the Bible: the play of its language, the coherence of its final form, and the relationships between text and readers. Biblical interpreters are being challenged to take responsibility for the theological, social, and ethical implications of their readings. This series encourages original readings that breach the confines of traditional biblical criticism.

Much more than a small paper back Nov 4, 2005
Possible the best piece of work on the story of Job. Penchansky knowledge of the subject matter is obvious from the first page as well as his ability to suggest new ideas and theories about Job with ample support to possible interpretations.
