Upcoming: The Book of Job

Keeping to our summer schedule, our next two sessions, Aug. 18 and Sept. 1, will involve reading The Book of Job. It will be interesting to compare different translations -- the King James Version is readily available, of course. Coincidentally, Robert Alter, whose translations of Genesis, Samuel and the Psalms have stood us in good stead in the past, has a new translation of Job, Proverbs and Ecclesiastes entitled The Wisdom Books. It can be pre-ordered from Amazon, but alas the release date is Oct. 11, 2010.

Here are Alter's other Old Testament translations on Amazon:
