Fifty scholars committed to the authority of Scripture as divine revelation. 60 volumes of the best critical scholarship. The end result: the Word Biblical Commentary series, which "harvests the important historical, textual, literary, and archaeological discoveries to serve the needs of professional scholars and teachers, students of the Bible and theology, working ministers, and anyone who wants a theological understanding from Scripture."
Add to that exalted series the second part of David Cline's commentary on the book of Job, covering chapters 21-37. Cline's masterful exposition of Job consistently maintains an alertness to both the windings of its arguments and the theological problem it raises, which is the conflict of faith and experience. Let Cline guide you through what he sees as the "most theologically and intellectually intense book of the Old Testament." Gain a measure of Cline's appreciation for the craftsmanship inherent in Job, as he looks at how its author ties together metaphor and theology in a "perenially uplifting and not infrequently euphoric experience."Overview of the Word Biblical Commentary (WBC) series:
