"'This is a powerful book on a topic of great interest beyond theologians and biblical scholars. Ticciati brilliantly weaves together biblical scholarship, a range of modern approaches to the book of Job, and the most important treatment of it in contemporary theology by Karl Barth, and she emerges with an original thesis about its meaning.... One sees why this work won her a coveted Research Fellowship in Cambridge in the face of over 200 other candidates from the whole range of arts and humanities disciplines.' -- Professor David Ford, University of Cambridge; 'I am amazed by Ms. Ticciati's work.... Finally, Ms. Ticciati's sheer performance also merits our attention: I mean the elegance of her writing, the exquisite fluidity and coherence of her new reading of Job, and the philosophic subtlety of her theological use of that reading. Beyond its convincing arguments, 'Journey into Job' also shows us that a significant theologian has newly appeared among us.' -- Peter Ochs, Professor of Modern Jewish Studies, University of Virginia"
