In this volume, J. Gerald Janzen examines the text of the book of Job as a literary text within the context of the history of the religion of Israel and within the broader context of the universal human condition. He approaches the basic character of the book from a literary perspective which enables him to identify human existence as exemplified in Job and to expound on the mystery of good and evil, which gives human existence its experiential texture and which together drive humans to ask the same kind of questions asked by Job. This is the first full-length commentary to present Job systematically and literarily.

Irving Muller5 Stars Out Of 5April 14, 2007Irving MullerThis is the best commentary on Job I've read. I took an intensive on Job this semester and this book by far was the best one I read for a paper I had to do. I read most of the other major ones. Some were even longer but none had the insight that Janzen brought to the table. He was deep and yet easy to understand. If you're looking for commentaries on Job, put this on the top of your list.
