This thesis proposes that, rather than giving an answer to the problem of undeserved suffering, the Book of Job provides a vehicle which each reader may use to find his/her own answer. Chapter 1 outlines the three levels on which the Book operates - parable, dramatic poem and vehicle - and examines the first two levels. Chapter 2 makes a case for the third level of operation, and how its enables the book to transcend the centuries. The next three chapters show how the book can be used to explore three styles of twentieth century psychotherapy; psychiatry; grief therapy and the way of myth and archetype. The final chapter gives the writer's own interpretation of the book, emphasising the human relationships between its characters.
