An insightful and suggestive exposition of Job with the Latin American context in the background (though it is rarely stated explicitly in the text). The main part of this book is only about 90 pages so it hardly scratches the surface of the complexity of Job; however Gutierrez does a good job of accounting for Job's innocent suffering and his increased identification with the poor and his trust in a God he can't understand.
