Publisher's Description

The title character of the book of Job suffers terribly, but we should not mistakenly think that this book is just about Job. It is about all of us, and ultimately about God.

Many have thought that the book simply restates the perennial questions that plague humankind in a world full of suffering. But often our questions are too limited, and we must learn to ask better questions so that we might find more significant answers. The book of Job answers our original questions obliquely, letting these answers prompt deeper questions, and leading us to discover the wealth that the book has to offer.

Most people assume that the book of Job deals with the question of why righteous people suffer. Instead, John Walton suggests that the book is about the nature of righteousness, not the nature of suffering. As we learn to deepen our questions, God will transform how we think about his work in the world and about our responses in times of suffering.

    This review was written for Job: NIV Application Commentary [NIVAC].
    Walton's commentary is insightful and well worth reading. I have found reviews critical of the contemporary application and especially of Kelly's story though carefully worded. I understand the criticisms as the focus on Kelly leaves one feeling that severe suffering and the life she lives are not a realistic possiblity. Job's suffering led him to sit on a mound to contemplate the mystery of God. Kelly endured her suffering and discovered God by living her life, not on a mound of isolation, but in the world in which we find ourselves. Both stories exceeded my expectations !
