Francis Andersen calls the book of Job one of the bests gifts of God to men. It is the story of one man's agony reaching out to the mystery of God, beyond words and explanations. He discusses Job's vast range of ideas, its broad coverage of human experience, the intensity of its passion and the immensity of its concept of God.

Readable and some good insights.
Sean Durity
This is perhaps a little gushy about the book of Job. However, it does a wonderful job of demonstrating the literary structure of Job without destroying the text. It also acknowledges places where the translations vary widely without getting lost in all the details. The section on chapter 28 is very valuable. Highly recommended for doing your own study through Job.
Brian Watson
This is a solid, evangelical commentary on the book of Job. It's not particularly brilliant, but it is useful and nearly forty years after its publication, it is still rated as one of the top commentaries on this book. That speaks either to the strength of this commentary or the weakness of others--or perhaps both.
