This is an introduction to Job. Some will not agree with the conclusions drawn by me on the study of the book. One might notice that my thoughts are influenced by scholar John Walton and his work in the NIV Application Commentary on Job. To look at Job as a thought experiment approaches the text differently. It is important to note that not all will agree with these thoughts. I do, however, believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. Genre is important when reading any book in the Bible.
