Great Conversation Plenary Lecture

"Justice and Tragedy in the Book of Job"

David Booth

Associate Professor of Religion

The Great Conversation is one of St. Olaf’s signature learning communities. The program focuses on the Western experience — from the Greeks and Hebrews on through the 20th century — over a five-course sequence that takes students through their first and second years of college. From time to time, all students enrolled in the program gather for plenary lectures delivered by one of the program professors or by a guest lecturer from another department.

We invite you to share your thoughts and raise questions (via the "Participate" tab above), and watch a faculty-led follow-up discussion.

Readings for the day:

  • Book of Job, 1-12 and 38-42
  • (Students use the New Oxford Annotated Bible, 4th edition, which has scholarly notes and uses the NRSV translation.)
