Editorial Reviews

The book of Job has been highly spoken of by many, both inside the Christian church and out. Thomas Carlyle, the nineteenth-century man of letters, wrote of it, 'I call it, apart from all theories about it, one of the grandest things ever written with pen... There is nothing written, I think, in the Bible or out of it, of equal literary merit.' Martin Luther described it as 'magnificent and sublime as no other book of Scripture'. As a part of Holy Scripture, it is imbued with a far higher inspiration than any one of the world's great classics. By it, God aims to instruct and encourage his people in their earthly pilgrimage towards heaven, just as he does in all the other books of the Bible. But the breadth of its appeal should not be forgotten. Set outside the life of Israel, the book of Job provides a ready-made point of contact with unchurched people. There are so many who have lost their way, either because they do not ask the big questions about life, or because they are swamped by the fact that there seem to be no real answers to them. By its presentation of both the grim realities of human existence and the wonder of divine grace, the book has something to say to any who would consult it seriously. It therefore supplies excellent material for lively and relevant preaching to people of every culture, not only by way of edification, but also evangelism. This commentary is written partly in the hope that such preaching will take place.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Book of Job has been 'covered' by may writers so you wonder "why another?" Well there's is a bottomless well of insight in that ancient book, and the author has taken a fresh approach to expounding it. It is written from a solid, evangelical perspective, taking the text as the words of God. The format of interleaving the Biblical text with the author's analysis/exposition is very well done. What I appreciate most is that the writing is scholarly, and serious, but free of 'inside baseball' jargon so that it is highly accessible to non-scholar readers who want to dive deeper. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
This commentary was recommended to me by a scholar and it far exceeded my expectations. Dr. Jones has written both for personal devotion and use in teaching others. Every page contains nuggets of truth worthy of meditation and application. Reading through the Prologue to Job (Ch 1 & 2) has created intense interest in devoting significant time to completion of all the chapters. I am already anticipating the other books he has authored, esp the one on Psalm 119.
