This argumentative section represents, in fact, the greatest portion of the book, which students of literature are more apt to find of interest because of its rhetorical values and strengths—the arguments remain classic in their investment in poor arguments, “rhetorical fallacies,” and questions on a divine or cosmic scale that need answering, but never are.
Job’s own discussions with his wife, or her demands made of him, clearly indicate that no afterlife is sought, expected, or in anyway part of their belief.

 Introduction to THE BOOK OF JOB
The book is so intent upon asserting the personality of God that it almost asserts the impersonality of man. Unless this gigantic cosmic brain has conceived a thing, that thing is insecure and void; man has not enough tenacity to ensure its continuance.
The book of Job is chiefly remarkable, as I have insisted throughout, for the fact that it does not end in a way that is conventionally satisfactory.

 The Book of Job
The strange and wonderful Book of Job treats of the same subject as we are discussing: its basis is a fiction, conceived for the purpose of explaining the different opinions which people hold on Divine Providence.
According to both theories, viz., the theory that Job did exist, and the theory that he did not exist, the introduction to the book is certainly a fiction; I mean the portion which relates to the words of the adversary, the words of God to the former, and the handing over of Job to him.
Job, as well as his friends, was of opinion that God Himself was the direct agent of what happened, and that the adversary was not the intermediate cause.

So Job's suffering is permitted as a test - an idea that is a bit new, for usually suffering had been considered as a divine punishment for sin (and it could be that).
So Job continues: Oh I wish God would crush me and cut me off.I have not denied what the Holy One says [We recall that the Holiness of God is that quality in virtue of which He loves all that is right.So Job is expressing the rightness of God].
But as we said in the introduction to this book of Job, the full purpose of suffering was still to be revealed in Jesus,even though the premises from which they might have reached a point at least close to that conclusion were already present.

 Amazon.com: The Book of Job: Books: Stephen Mitchell   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-28)
Though Job is permitted to suffer at the hands of the accuser, this book is the story of Job's triumph.
The sections that he breaks the Book up into are extremely helpful, and his piecing together the third speeches of Bildad and Zophar is very well done, and eliminates the confusion that the King James and Revised Standard leave in their translation.
Mitchell's translation of the book is excellent poetry; he says he tries to capture the 'urgency' of the book, and he does so admirably well (if it was there in the first place).
