Product Description
  • Preaching's 2017 Survey of Bibles and Bible Reference

We often turn to the book of Job when we encounter suffering. We look for an explanation for the questions Why me? or Why her? But what if it turns out that although Job does suffer, the book is not really about his suffering? If ever a book needed a How to Read instruction manual, it is the book of Job. And when two respected Old Testament scholars team up--both of whom have written commentaries on Job--we have a matchless guide to reading and appreciating the book. From their analysis of its place in the wisdom literature of the Bible and the ancient Near East to their discussions of its literary features and relationship to history, Walton and Longman give us the best of their expertise. They explore the theology of Job, placing it within Israelite religion and Old Testament theology. And they coach us in how to read Job as Christians. When it turns out the book is not what we thought it was, our reading is richly layered and more satisfying. Whether you are preparing for preaching, teaching, leading a Bible study, studying for a class or for personal enrichment, How to Read Job is your starting point.
