by Th.D. Don Shackelford
Located within the Wisdom Literature of the Old Testament, the Book of Job explores the topic of human suffering. Like many today, Job was plagued with great anguish, confusion, and despair. However, he did not allow his adversities to destroy his faith. In the midst of his gloom, Job cried out to God, the only One who could rescue him. A study of the Book of Job challenges believers today to rely on God in order to weather the storms of life.
"Dr. Don Shackelford makes another important addition to the Truth for Today Commentary series. Drawing from rich scholarship and a lifetime of service, Shackelford describes and examines the theology and truths of life offered by the Book of Job. He challenges readers to dig more deeply into the text in order to grow spiritually and walk more closely with God. This commentary belongs in the libraries of all ministers of the gospel!"
