Jung comments in introducing the Book of Job that it is plain how the people of the Old Testament regarded their God. What concerned him more was the idea carried by his contemporary Christians on this subject. (1976, 527) Jung seems to be saying that Western humanity continues to be haunted by myths of a God that become angry, vindictively attack sinners and show plain preference for the virtuous. (1976, 529) The testing of Job's faith is a very serious business, as described by Jung with occasional references to scripture.
