C.L. Seow on “Job?s Wife in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim Interpretations”

Join us for an amazing opportunity to hear renowned Old Testament expert C.L. Seow of Princeton Theological Seminary. His new book,“Job 1-21: Interpretation and Comment,” was released earlier this year and will be for sale at the seminary event.

C.L. Seow is Henry Snyder Gehman Professor of Old Testament Language and Literature at Princeton Theological Seminary. A recognized expert in Old Testament studies and the general editor of the Illuminations series, he is also the author of the Anchor Bible commentary on Ecclesiastes.

From the publisher: The Hebrew book of Job is by all accounts an exquisite piece of literary art that holds its rightful place among the most outstanding compositions in world literature. Yet it is also widely recognized as an immensely difficult text to understand.

In elucidating that ancient text, this inaugural Illuminations commentary by C. L. Seow pays close attention to the reception history of Job, including Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and Western secular interpretations as expressed in theological, philosophical, and literary writings and in the visual and performing arts. Seow offers a primarily literary-theological interpretation of Job, a new translation, and detailed commentary.

The program is free, but seating is limited.
