By Michael Taylor TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 8, 2009
Format: Paperback
"Be Patient" is another title in the "Be" series by Warren Wiersbe. This particular title focuses on the Book of Job and the main characters (besides God and the devil) are: Job, four men who attempted to comfort him at first but ended up rebuking him (Eliphaz, Bildad, Zophar, and Elihu).

Job's "comforters" attempted to label his circumstances (bad health, losing his kids and property, etc.) as a result of his sin. Those who read the Book of Job know otherwise - sometimes we suffer because of life in general and not because of our own sin. In the end, God vindicates Job and is critical of his "comforters".

Wiersbe summarizes the Book of Job for the reader and offers his explanations which seem to be biblically-based. The book is a good read and the narrrative flows smoothly. Contrary to an earlier reveiwer, I did not get the impression that Wiersbe was giving "pat" answers to Job's situation without any sympathy. Quite the contrary, Wiersbe has served in the ministry in various roles and I imagine he has sympathized with and supported people during their own personal trials.

Read, enjoy, and be encouraged! Recommended.

This book "waiting on God in difficult times" by Warren Wiersbe is a great book explaning generally the Bible book of Job and the larger picture.It does not go verse by verse nor does he agree with me the about the leviathin.Still,I learned a lot and all in all a solid book about poor Job,his 3 friends,a wiser young friend,and Gods rebuttal.

Warren Wiersbe is one of my favorite Bible commentators because of his writing style. It's almost conversational, very easy and straightforward reading, and rich with thought and detail. More than 20 years ago I asked for (and received) Wiersbe's 2-volume BE series on the New Testament as a Christmas present, and I often read it for pleasure, not necessarily as part of a Bible study but just because it's so interesting and reads like a Bible story book. This book, Be Patient (Job): Waiting on God in Difficult Times (The BE Series Commentary) is a very interesting and helpful book about Job. Having grown up with the Bible, I know the story well, but Wiersbe's book provided a deeper insight to Job's suffering and the lessons we can learn about how he responded to it and his relationship with God. Highly recommended.

As always an excellent commentary from a man whose heart is in His Word. Always easy to read, to comprehend and to learn from in order to share with others. I couldn't recommend it more highly for anyone studying the Book of Job for any purpose.

Warren Wiersbe has again written a concise, easy to understand, commentary on the book of Job included in his Be Series. I had previously read through the book of Job but had never fully realized the extent of Job's suffering and his incredible faith until I began studying the book of Job along with Dr. Wiersbe's book. I would recommend any of Warren Wiersbe's books. They are biblically sound and easy to use for study.

This commentary assists in understanding Job, the reason for his affliction, the three friends' comments and misunderstanding of Job, and, of course, God. It is difficult to know details of this ancient culture, but the author makes it more clear what the theme is and how to treat it.

After this book, now I can say I understand the book of Job and I understand God better as well. Churches should teach more about the book of Job, that way we can come to an understanding, through our suffering and our trials, that God always has a purpose and He always brings spiritual growth.
