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.

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.

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.
