Abstract

The aim of the paper is to examine the problem of suffering in the Book of Job and the possible solution it offers. For this reason, it is structured as follows: (I) In the first section, we will analyse Job’s evidential argument; (II) the second section will delve into the ‘friends’ and their failed attempt at a retributive theodicy; (III) finally, we shall look into God’s argument and try to explain Job’s answer in terms of sceptical theism.
