Heinlein's retelling of the tribulations of Job is often funny and sometimes uneven, as a fundamentalist Christian in a 1994 that's not quite "ours" gets shuffled from one reality to another as a variety of powerful beings utilize him in their private games. Heinlein has some interesting things to say about the nature of divinity, and he does it through a good-natured and amiable schlumpf.

I was a bit confused for a while, but at the story's conclusion I was quite satisfied. I've enjoyed every Heinlein book I have ever read.
