The Book of Bob

Witty and mischievous.
A contemporary retelling of The Book of Job.

Meet Bob, a middle-aged professor who works hard, disdains evil and lives green. He eats a low-fat/high-fibre diet, recycles and composts, and doesn’t possess a car or cellphone as a matter of principle. A woman stands behind him. This is God. Observing that Bob is a self-congratulatory soul, She assaults his righteous existence with a host of misfortunes, starting with the disruptive use of a smartphone during one of his lectures. Bob confronts Her assaults – even though he is an atheist and denies God’s very existence.
