This commentary is a discerning look at what the Book of Job can teach us about seasons of crying out, thinking, acting, listening, and recovering. Balancing dramatic anecdotes and careful biblical exposition, Jackson affirms that Job's hope was the same as ours, and that in Jesus our questions are resolved, our faith vindicated, and our suffering redeemed.
