Purpose

The purpose for this short book is to describe a technique I developed for examining written text. In this book I will explain the technique and apply it to the Book of Job. The Book of Job is a religious and philosophical text contained in the Jewish Torah and the Christian Bible.

I used a similar technique in a book called Growth Rings: How We Get Connected. In Coping Styles I examined small blocks of
