Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.4 stars; 35 reviews)

The Book of Job is one of the books of the Hebrew Bible. It relates the story of Job, his trials at the hands of Satan, his theological discussions with friends on the origins and nature of his suffering, his challenge to God, and finally a response from God. The Book itself comprises a didactic poem set in a prose framing device and has been called "the most profound and literary work of the entire Old Testament". The Book itself and its numerous exegeses are attempts to address the problem of evil. (Introduction from Wikipedia)

INTERESTING APPROACH

(4 stars)

The idea of dramatizing this difficult and sometimes tedious book helped bring it to life clearly. It is a shame, however, that the voice of Satan sounded more like a bashful schoolboy trying to recite lines thanthe haughty, proud, and malicious "father of lies."

(0.5 stars)

I have listened to Dramatisation version and after this one version 2 and it is obvious Version 2 is better in every way! Maybe people are trying too hard to sound someone they are not.
