    Abstract:
    According to Gerhard von Rad, the book of Job provides examples of both how the wise took the offensive against God when individual suffering attacked the trust that they put in Yahweh’s ordering of the world and how they resolved their doubts by trusting in Yahweh’s mysterious and inexplicable ways. Though von Rad’s interpretation of Job is rarely acknowledged in current anglophone scholarship, it anticipates a number of recent developments, as it places Job in a broader dialogue with Israel’s traditions beyond “Wisdom Literature” and creates a framework for reconciling Job’s defiance with his faith.
