The Book of Job (KJV)
Undoubtedly, the greatest work of literature ever written is the Authorized Version of the English Bible. This single work standardized English spelling and grammar, and marked the beginning of modern English. However, within the Bible, the Book of Job is not only one of the oldest single examples of literature, but this book is the most profound work from a literary point of view. Indeed, Job is the standard by which all other works of literature must be judged. The Book of Job has it all: prose, poetry, and drama. The book is for the person who thinks deeply about life, and it offers a rare look at the unseen world as the spiritual forces take an active role in the lives of human beings. The central question that is answered in Job is "why do the righteous suffer?" This work is much more than mere philosophical reflections, though it excels all human philosophies, since man’s wisdom fails during the trials of life. The Book of Job offers superior knowledge through revelation by which human beings must guide their lives.
