Primary for Discovering the Biblical Intention 17 Feb. 2003
By Christopher David Kirk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mr. Sacks has done the scholarly world a great service in teasing out the nuances of one of the most difficult "dialogues" of the Bible. Sacks' knowledge of Hebrew is excellent, and his lifelong acquaintance with the rival Greek poetic/philosophical tradition enables him to transcend the usual dogmatic regurgitations that pass for exegesis today. "Job", as Maimonides suggests, is "the" book for understanding God's Providence (i.e. His direct influence on human affairs). Although Sacks' commentary is intentionally allusive, his analysis is far more accesible than Maimonides' Guide for the Perplexed. Sacks' exegesis rivals Thomas Aquinas' semi-Aristotelian treatment of Job and invites comparison to it; Sacks' prior commentary on Genesis, together with this volume, constitutes an indispensible first step in the re-evaluation of the tradition of modern biblical criticism (inaugurated by Spinoza). Highly recommended for both students of Scripture and of philosophy.
