    Moreover, the meaning and function of this term constitute in large measure the overall message of the book.1 The term, which occurs thirty-eight times in the book, serves as a catchword for Qoheleth's dominant theme.2 It is part of the inclusion that envelops the book as a whole. T his book is a profound treatment of the biblical book of Qoheleth or Ecclesiastes. It is the fruit of decades of study of the work by a scholar who charts his way with ease across the rest of the canon of Scripture, and beyond into other cultures and cultural pathways. The Book of Job is a powerful and ultimately life-affirming book. But the text - one of the Bible's oldest - can sometimes seem puzzling to modern audiences. Now, The Book of Job: A Bible Study Course gives you an insightful look into how Job can transform your faith today.

Elohim is employed particularly to drive home the point of God’s universal providence and sovereignty over all creation, who is thus to be feared and worshipped. The colours with which Qoheleth paints these evils are indeed glaring, but they naturally flow from the poetical-oratorical style of his book and from his inward agitation, which likewise gives rise to the hyperbolical language in the Book of Job and in certain psalms.

However, Qoheleth, unlike the pessimists, does not inveigh against God and.
