Document Summary

Book of job and a serious man: differences. Job"s 3 friends give him bad/useless advice (repent for sins) and try to rationalize the distribution of justice in the world. The 2 (!) rabbis with whom larry speaks give him good/useful advice: he needs to look at the world with new perspective (first rabbi), and g-d"s ways are a mystery for which there are no answers (second rabbi). The central theme in the book of job is the possibility of disinterested righteousness. Larry on his failed marriage: it was a bolt from the blue. Everything that i thought was one way turns out to be another. This is what job must have felt. Woman at the beach says to larry: it"s not always easy trying to decipher what g-d is trying to tell you. But it"s not something you have to figure out by yourself.
