This collection of essays focuses on the book of Job, exploring the complex interplay of methodology and hermeneutics. There are two major parts: approaches that are primarily historical, recovering what the text "meant"; and those that are contextual, taking seriously the context of reading. Both approaches engage the theological issue of how this reading helps us to better appropriate what the text "means". Contributors include the editors, Mark S. Smith, Douglas J. Green, Victoria Hoffer, Ellen F. Davis and Claire Matthews McGinnis. An introductory essay surveys the contents and outcomes of the various contributions and proposes new directions for the question of integrating methods.
