John Hartley's commentary work is always a consistent practice of hermeneutical efficiency applied to each piece of a biblical narrative. I have adapted his phrase for identifying Job 19 as expressive of Job's deepest convictions.
A conservative commentary on Job of moderate plus depth. Focuses on the Hebrew text, includes textual difficulties. I highly recommend this to anyone who has not studied the book of Job and desires to understand this fascinating ancient text.
An excellent commentary on the book of Job. Hartley interacts constantly with the original text and goes to great lengths in his attempts at textual criticism, although some of his conclusions seem to be a bit strained. He well points out and follows the major themes of the book, and his summaries following every section aid the reader's understanding of the book's development. Additionally, his wide understanding of ANE customs and literature are indispensable to the discussion.
