Dissertation Proposal:  A Franklian Reading of the Book of Job

"This dissertation will develop a hermeneutic based on the existential approach to suffering of Dr. Viktor E. Frankl.  The Book of Job will be read in light of this hermeneutic.  Special emphasis will be placed on the existential question of whether Job will "curse God and die."  Job's final, ambiguous response to the speeches of God will be treated as an existential challenge to the reader.  The dissertation will conclude with a discussion of how a Franklian hermeneutic is of benefit in understanding and responding to this challenge."
