Each volume in the Understanding the Bible Commentary Series breaks down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent to contemporary readers. They present a careful section-by-section exposition of the biblical books with key terms and phrases highlighted and all Hebrew transliterated. Notes at the close of each chapter provide additional textual and technical comments for those who want to dig deeper. A bibliography as well as Scripture and subject indexes are also included. Pastors, students, and Bible teachers will find in this series a commitment to accessibility without sacrificing serious scholarship.
Job delves into questions as old as humanity and as contemporary as today's headlines: How does God's justice work? How are we to understand suffering? More importantly, how are we to respond to it? Through careful analysis and explanation of Job's dialogue, Wilson sheds light on its core message: a call to faithfully persevere, entrusting the answers to God.
