Four features of Antonio Negri's The Labor of Job stand out, at least for one trained in that arcane discipline of biblical criticism: radical homiletics, philosophical commentary, revolutionary readings of the Bible, and the politics of cosmogony. Let me say a little more about each one as I follow the ropes that moor Negri's The Labor of Job to the Bible and biblical criticism. At the heart of the book is what I would like to call a radical homiletics. A discipline much neglected these days, homiletics is really the art of connecting a text like the Bible with the realities of everyday life, moving from the intricacies of textual analysis to the application to life.
