copies of this ISBN edition:
The book of Job airs the problem of undeserved suffering, through the case of a God-fearing man who undergoes a series of calamities until even his wife advises him to 'curse God and die'. At stake is the question of why he is good - is it only because he has enjoyed prosperity or is it due to a genuine faith and trust in God? As part of the Old Testament wisdom literature, Job focuses on universal human experience, on the struggle to find a moral path through the maze of choices, and on trying to understand life's hard times. It is a masterpiece of world literature that continues to speak to suffering people, because of its sensitivity and depth of insight. The People's Bible Commentary (PBC) is designed for all those who want to study the scriptures in a way that will warm the heart as well as instruct the mind.
