The poet, Alfred Lord Tennyson, is reputed to have called the book of Job, 'The greatest poem of ancient or modern times' It is indeed, a poetic masterpiece; one of the most original poems in the history of mankind, and it also one of the most dramatic illustrations in the Bible of the interrelationship of God, mankind and Satan. There is much argument as to what is the basic theme of Job. There are many opinions- the patienceof a good man under testing, why do the innocent suffer?, the tragedy of life in a fallen world, justification by faith, the comprehensibility of God's dealings with man, even a parable of suffering Israel- all have been suggested. One reason why it may be difficult to find a unifying theme is that it really happened! This is not someone's opinion about spiritual matters but an event that is reported in detail and then set in a different literary style.^^

Written by someone who spent his life in the Rainforest this book has the added benefit of being written by someone who has been there lived there and experienced the culture not just someone who has read the encyclopaedias.
