Now My Eyes Have Seen You
Images of Creation and Evil in the Book of Job
Few biblical texts are more daunting, and yet more fascinating, than the book of Job - and few have been the subject of such diverse interpretation. For Robert Fyall, the mystery of God's ways and the appalling evil and suffering in the world are at the heart of Job's significant contribution to the canon. This study offers a holistic reading of the book, with particular reference to its depiction of creation and evil, and find significant clues to its meaning in the striking imagery it uses. Dr Fyall takes seriously the literary and artistic integrity of Job, as well as its theological profundity. He concludes that the book is not so much about suffering per se as about creation, providence and knowing God, and how - in the crucible of suffering - these are to be understood. He encourages us to listen to this remarkable literature, to be moved by it, and to see its progress from shrieking protest to repentance and vision.
