Our world is fascinating and wondrous, but life on this planet is not easy. Recently the news has been filled with catastrophic scenes of suffering and death: tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes, avian flu, and melting icecaps. Within these scenes, human greed, war, and accidental harvests of the "grim reaper add to our miseries. For many the Book of Job is not only one of the world's great literary accomplishments, but it also contains the message, which we need to deal with the realities of this life. But who can understand the Book of Job? The Rebel Job is the poem of the rebel Job that was buried, by the "righteous," in the Book of Job. The Rebel Job speaks to human needs, dealing with suffering without resorting to fantasy. But this poem remains buried for most. A few poets and novelists have caught glimpses of it, but in many cases The Rebel Job was kept from the pious readers. The rebel was too radical for his "righteous friends," who believed in an all-powerful God and one who demanded fear. For the rebel this God did not exist. The rebel has given us a great gift.
