My head is spinning

"The book of Job has been called one of the most difficult books in the bible. Why is that? What is it about this story that makes it one of the most loved and admired books and yet one that is so difficult to understand? Instead of taking a linear path through the story, we are going to attempt to identify some major themes that are woven throughout the text and examine the story from a variety of viewpoints."

This is what we're using for our summary of the class. There are truly so many things you can talk about within the story of Job that it's virtually impossible to cover it all in a limited amount of time. We hope to at least hit some highlights, ask some probing questions, and hope we can find some answers... or at least some things to think about.
