My question is when Job was written. I am not necessarily wondering when the events in Job took place, nor am I asking when the bulk of the content was written (in the case of redaction) -- though these things may be relevant data points. I am wondering when the book in its canonical form was written.

If there are differing opinions on this (as I'm sure there are), what are the primary arguments in each major direction?
