Looking For Justice In The Book Of Job
Joan Acocella: "God boasts to Satan, Have you seen my servant Job, so pious, so devoted to me? Satan answers, Why shouldn't he be devoted? You have given him everything he could ever want: 'But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.' Well, God says, let's see, and he gives Satan permission to ruin Job's life." The New Yorker 12.16.13
