Calvin's sermons on Job are a fascinating part of his voluminous heritage. Derek Thomas' able exposition guides us through some of the key issues raised by the text. His work contains valuable lessons both for the understanding of Calvin and for the task of preacher today. (Anthony N. S. Lane ~ Professor of Historical Theology, London School of Theology, London)
"Thomas leads the reader systematically through Calvin's thoughts as he wrestled the book of Job expositionally and also real-life answers to the most perplexing questions in the Christian life. It's a book that I will come back to time and time again when my own soul and the souls of others ask the question 'Why?'" (Tony Reinke ~ Writer for Desiring God & author of Lit!)
'The book of Job is included within the canon of Scripture, not to perplex, or provoke debate, but for proclamation... Yet relatively few preachers feel comfortable doing that! In these pages a preacher-theologian guides us through the sermons of one of the greatest preacher-theologians of church history... The end product is to pave the way for Job to be used more powerfully and practically in the pulpit. In so doing it will open this book for all who struggle with suffering and the problem of evil.' (Mark Johnston ~ Minister, Bethel Presbyterian Church, Cardiff, Wales)
...a valuable resource to both the Genevan Reformer and a difficult OT book. Thomas examines Calvin's work not only in a scholarly way, but also in a spirit that will promote the preaching of this neglected book of Scripture. His preaching of a book which has so much to say to the people of God as they endure trials is most valuable, and in Derek Thomas we have an able guide to Calvin's work. (David McKay ~ Professor of Systematic Theology, Ethics and Apologetics, Reformed Theological College, Belfast, Northern Ireland)
