This volume fills an important gap in the study of the Hebrew Bible by providing the first comprehensive treatment of intertextuality in Job which addresses intertextual resonances between Job and texts in all three divisions of the Hebrew canon, along with non-canonical texts throughout history, from the ancient Near East to modern literature. Though comprehensive, this study will not be exhaustive, but will invite further study into connections between Job and these texts, few of which have previously been explored systematically. Thus, the volume’s impact will reach beyond Job to each of the “intertexts” discussed.
As a multi-authored volume that gathers together scholars with expertise on this diverse array of texts, the range of discussion is wide. The contributors have been encouraged to pursue the intertextual approach that best suits their topic, thereby offering readers a valuable collection of intertextual case studies addressing a single text. No study quite like this has yet been published, therefore it will also provide a framework for future intertextual studies of other biblical texts.
