After firewalking in Polynesia, fundamentalist minister Alexander Hergensheimer never saw the world the same. Now called Alec Graham, he is in the middle of an affair with his stewardess, Margrethe, when natural disasters begin plaguing them. First, there is an impossible iceberg that wrecks the ship in the tropics; then, after being rescued by a Royal Mexican plane, they are hit by a double earthquake. To Alex, the signs are clear: Armageddon and the Day of Judgment are near. Somehow, he has to bring his beloved heathen, Margrethe, to a state of grace, for heaven would be no paradise without her. But time is growing short. And, while he is at it, there has to be a way to save the rest of the world.

Quotes & Awards

  • Job is funny, exciting, and thought-provoking…Read it!”

    Isaac Asimov

  • “Heinlein’s done it again…Job is the best thing he’s written for years!”

    Arthur C. Clarke

  • “I couldn’t put Job down…It is a gripping novel, one of the best.”

    Larry Niven, New York Times bestselling author

  • “In my opinion, this is the simply the finest Heinlein I have ever read!”

    Robert Bloch, author of Psycho

  • Job is an exhilarating romp through the author’s mental universe.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “The author’s willingness to push his assumptions to their limits is clearly in evidence here…it may, in fact, be his strongest work in nearly two decades.”

    Newsday

  • “Fire-and-brimstone religion is not a topic one expects to find in a science fiction novel, but, heck, why not? It’s a treat to trot along with Heinlein as he creates with a madman’s glee—and a master’s expertise.”

    USA Today

  • “Funny, philosophical, sometimes scary, always gentle, the book is as inventive as anything Heinlein has written.”

    Seattle Times

  • “Heinlein’s latest novel pits human faith against cosmic whim. Displaying both his crusty, irreverent humor and his genuine respect for the fate of his characters, this novel will please Heinlein’s legion of readers.”

    Library Journal

  • “Heinlein’s back in form, with a most refreshing and satisfying blend of ideas and storytelling…A limber, complex, and economical novel that disarms and often compels—with Heinlein’ best theology-shaded fantasy since Stranger in a Strange Land.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  •  A New York Times Bestseller
  • Winner of the 1985 Locus Award for Best Fantasy Novel
  • A 1985 Hugo Award Nominee
  • A 1984 Nebula Award Nominee

    " OK, this is Heinlein in his sunset years. Yes, it is a bit over the top. Yes, I still loved it, as I do pretty much all his stuff. Call me a fanboi, I don't care. "

    " Not Heinlein's best book. No siree bob. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Ogreart Art | 2/3/2014

    " I remember reading this book when it first came out in 1984. It challenged some of my religious concepts and made me think. What a thing for a book to do! This audio version is well done. It took me into the story of this modern-day Job and let me relive the adventure. Heinlein was the master. "
