Arguing with Job

Consolation and Quarrel in the Joban Dialogue
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0661-1
Arguing with Job examines the contexts and cultures of argumentation in the dialogue between Job and his friends (chaps. 4-27), especially in light of ancient Near Eastern dialogues. Alderman argues that the role of Job’s friends is not adversarial but consolatory. Job, however, refuses their counsel and shifts the framework for their exchanges to a “quarrel,” a framework for dialogue, which for Job, opens up a space for speaking about pain, suffering, and traumatic experience.
