J.C. De Moor deals with these questions in his book ‘The Rise of Yahwism’. I can check
 the specifics when I get home, but off the top of my head, he concludes Job, or Yabbu,
 was a Canaanite king living at the late bronze age at the area of Bashan. He was vassal 
to the Egyptians. He may have written the original kernel of the book himself - the book 
has many polytheistic references. In addition to textual analysis he provides some 
 supporting archaeological evidence. (He also has a chapter on Moses - this book is 
amazing.) - Noam Eitan, Brooklyn, NY

Dear members of the list,

I have a four part question regarding Job.

1. What are the most accurate dates for when the book might have been
2. Can Job himself be placed in any acceptable date when he might possibly
have lived?
3. Can there be any possible reason to consider that Moses might have
collected the story?
4. Can the land of Nod be identified?

Thankyou all Chris.
