Cyril Barber gives us a fine volume on Job aimed at laypeople, but quite pleasing to pastors. I will never understand why volumes by this fine writer arent more well known. He shows such an outstanding, broad reading behind what he writes.
He gives great insight into Job, his times, his family situation, his wife, and his physical ailments. Discussion of Satan at work is equally enlightening. The discussion of the three friends and the psychological impact on Job is explained in a way that opens up the text.
Along the way there is helpful discussion on the theology of suffering, which is one of the keys of the book. He gives Elihus comments good perspective too at the end. The length is ideal for what this volume purports to be.
While this will can not take the place of an exegetical commentary, read this volume after studying such commentaries and you will be greatly enriched.
This volume may not be as good or as in-depth as his volumes on First and Second Kings, but it is still quite helpful. I recommend it and all the Cyril Barber volumes published by Wipf & Stock.
