Editor reviews

From the thunderous boom of God’s voice to the unflinching depiction of Job’s catastrophic fall from grace at the hands of Satan, Full Cast Audio’s emotionally charged, appropriately theatrical performance capture the dark, but ultimately redemptive, poetry of this timeless ancient text. The anchor is Gerard Moses, whose compelling, nuanced portrayal of Job masterfully blends self-righteousness, spiritual tumult, naked despair, and unassailable faith in this spellbinding audiobook version of one of the most discussed entries in the Old Testament.

Summary

Job is a good and prosperous man, possible the best man of his time. Then, without warning, all that he has worked for is stripped from him in a sudden series of terrible disasters.

Three friends come to visit, supposedly to comfort him. But their accusations that Job must somehow have brought these calamities upon himself spark a debate.

As the four men dispute, in public, the nature of Job's suffering they delve into ancient questions about the nature of man's relationship to the Almighty, questions that can only be resolved by the Almight himself.

Experience the power, passion, and poetry of one of the Bible's most extraordinary stories as never before in this full cast presentation, which is anchored by a remarkable performance from Gerard Moses, who brings depth and dimension to Job, a good man struggling to keep his faith in the face of unbearable calamity.

This is a recording to listen to over and over, for each new hearing will give you additional insight into the mysteries and wonders of this sacred text.
