PROBLEMATA MUNDI.

Of unknown date and unknown authorship, the language impregnated with strange

idioms and strange allusions, unjewish in form, and in fiercest hostility with Judaism, it (the Book of Job] hovers like a meteor over the old Hebrew literature, in it, but not of it; compelling the acknowledgment of itself by its own internal majesty, yet exerting no influence over the minds of the people; never alluded to, and scarcely ever quoted, till at last the light which it had heralded rose up full over the world in Christianity.”

J. A. FROUDE, M.A.

“I call that (the Book of Job), apart from all theories about it, one of the grandest things

ever written with pen. There is nothing written, I think, either in the Bible or out of it, equal to it.
