These commentaries waste no words in distilling Bible truths and drilling down to the essential lessons that each verse offers.
This Focus on the Bible Commentary zooms in on the book of Job, a poetic masterpiece. Some might say it is one of the most original poems ever written. The story is one of the most dramatic illustrations in the Bible of the relationship between God, man, and Satan.
While written in ancient times, Job has themes that are applicable to us today. Some of them include:
- The suffering of the innocent
- Justification by faith
- Patience under testing
- The tragedy of life in a fallen world
- The incomprehensibility of God’s dealings with man
This volume is a fascinating study on a fascinating book. Beyond providing insight, the author, Bill Cotton, has added highlight boxes throughout the commentary that discuss basic problems and the flow of thought throughout the commentary.
This fresh commentary really does what it promises - it helps you to FOCUS on Job.This focused approach is very helpful, inspiring, and ideal for sermon and lesson preparation.
