Far from being an engaging fable, the account of Job in the Bible is one of the most historically and scientifically accurate records of the ancient world. Perhaps the oldest book in the Bible, the Book of Job touches on many subjects of science and history: an ice age and hydrologic processes in the oceans, to accounts of cave-dwelling people. This commentary on the controversial Book of Job is very different from most of the seminary and Church teachings so prevalent today, for it attests to the historicity of a man named Job who understood at the end of his life that God cannot be "figured out," but He can most certainly be trusted.

Far from a myth or fable, the majestic Book of Job stands forever as a genuine historical account of a man assaulted by the accuser, Satan, and redeemed by a loving God. The author asserts further that Job's ancient account (possibly the oldest book in the Bible, apart from Genesis) is scientifically reliable, touching on aspects of nature that prove man's early knowledge of the universe was more highly sophisticated than many believe today. While this commentary emphasizes that we are not told in the Book of Job why humans suffer, there is sufficient evidence to help us understand that God is indeed interested in us.
