Product Description

Just as there was no man on earth like Job, there is no book on earth like the book of Job. In this new commentary, biblical scholar Michael Brown brings Job to life for the twenty-first-century reader, exploring the raw spirituality of Job, his extraordinary faith, his friends’ theological errors, the mysteries of God’s speeches, and the unique answers to the problem of suffering offered in the book of Job. Undergirded by solid Hebrew scholarship but written with clarity for all serious students of Scripture, the commentary provides an important introduction to the study of Job, a new translation, a series of theological reflections, and additional exegetical essays providing in-depth discussion of key passages.

Additional topics covered in the theological reflections include:

  • Challenging God as an act of faith
  • How would Job comfort a sufferer?
  • Who was Satan?
  • Job and Jesus
  • Job and the New Atheists

Endorsements

“The book of Job raises the question on the lips of every believer seized by pain and suffering: Why does God allow the righteous to suffer? Consequently, the book has become essential reading for comfort. But anyone who has spent time in the book of Job quickly learns that it’s a difficult read, both in terms of structure and content. Lay-level commentaries avoid the difficulties in favor of devotional themes. Scholarly commentaries get lost in the minutiae in the attempt to produce an exhaustive guide for the perplexed. It’s a noteworthy occasion, then, when a commentary on Job comes along that engages its oddities with both academic and pastoral skill, never losing sight of how Job’s plight applies to our own lives while tackling its challenges. Dr. Michael L. Brown has produced such a commentary. Dr. Brown wisely partitions his work into sections that, respectively, help the reader to navigate Job’s series of literary cycles, to discern the book’s theological pay-offs, and to drill down into interpretive sidebars. The essay on how Job is mishandled by the new atheism is especially important. There’s something for everyone here—scholar, pastor, and lay Bible student alike.”
