Ethics in the Book of Job
LECTURE IN HONOR OF RICHARD J. CLIFFORD, S.J.
March 19, 2009
Presenter: Leong Seow, professor of Old Testament language and literature, Princeton Theological Seminary.
In the history of Christian interpretation, Job has always been held up as an example of moral excellence, with the early exegetes pointing to the Prologue (chapter 1-2) and Job’s own assertions in chapters 30 and 31. This lecture explores the ethical perspectives represented in these and other important but less-noticed passages in the book.
Sponsored by the School of Theology and Ministry and generously supported by the Kitz Family in honor of Richard J. Clifford, S.J.
