Resumo

VENTER, Philip P.. Wealth, poverty and mutual care: Towards a reconstructive reading of the book of Job. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.36, n.3, pp.1-7. ISSN 2074-7705.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ve.v36i3.1473.

Perceived disruptions between the poetic and prose genres in the book of Job often lead to deconstruction or deconstructive readings of the text. In this article the broad outlines of a possible reconstructive reading are sketched. This revolves around research results regarding the principles inherent to God's address to Job in chapters 38-41. The transformation of Job is shown by comparing his earlier prosperity in the prologue, which he lost, and the description of his newly found prosperity in the epilogue. It will be argued that the epilogue is an essential part of the whole book, and serves to illustrate that Job was indeed transformed by the principles unveiled by the Voice from within the storm. This transformation led to a life which is characterised by its fullness and satisfactory conclusion.
