Product Description

In this commentary Lindsay Wilson shows the book of Job to be a coherent literary work that addresses this question: Is it possible for humans to have genuine faith in God regardless of their circumstances? Wilson argues that Job's bold, sometimes questioning cries to God are portrayed as legitimate expressions of trust for a righteous person in adversity.

Through critical exegesis of the text, Wilson focuses on the message of Job and its implications for practical ministry, examining such key issues as suffering, justice, lament, and faith. He also touches on various pertinent topics in Christian ethics, including individual character, wealth, suicide, and the environment. In a final section Wilson offers guidance on using Job as a resource book for pastoral care and prayer, and he discusses how to teach and preach from the book of Job.

Endorsements

In his masterful treatment of the book of Job, Lindsay Wilson has constructed a bridge between the ancient Hebrew text and the contemporary reader. . . . His theological reflection is firmly grounded in precise exegesis and is powerfully relevant to life today. Drawing upon thirty years of studying, teaching, and preaching Job, Wilson in this volume presents a gift that surely will be welcomed by scholars, pastors, and the people of God.
-Daniel J. Estes,
Cedarville University

With literary awareness and theological insight, Lindsay Wilson guides us through the contested waters of Job's interpretation and significance. . . . Anyone wrestling with the issues raised by the book will find here a resource that builds a robust faith rooted in exegetical and theological depth.
-David Firth,
University of Nottingham

Careful and helpfully concise exposition of the text of Job is enriched by thorough discussions of the book's theological themes. . . . I warmly commend this volume to serious Bible readers and especially to preachers, theologians, and evangelists who in different ways may be unsure of the importance of the book of Job for their tasks.
-John Woodhouse,
Moore Theological College
