Description

The book of Job speaks to some of the most universal issues of our human experience. Feelings of grief, misery, sorrow and distress are played out against the backdrop of a man resolute in his claim of innocence of the accusations, brought by three of his alleged friends, of being an unrepentant sinner. But Job’s sufferings serve to demonstrate more truth than Job and his friends grasped. Walter Kaiser guides us through this often–neglected book to find that pure worship in suffering is not only possible, but that such times of suffering can deepen our insight into the character of God.

Endorsements

… Walt Kaiser makes the ancient story of suffering come alive for our times. He lucidly demonstrates that in the story it is not Job who is on trial, but ‘God who is on trial.’ And God in his grace comes out of the trial in majestic victory. Highly recommended for pastors and laity.

Dennis P. Hollinger, President and Colman M. Mockler Distinguished Professor of Christian Ethics, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, South Hamilton, Massachusetts

… a superb exposition, which offers many insights from the Hebrew text and which helpfully clarifies the differences in the expostulations of Job’s four critics.
