A good resource to consult when endeavouring to understand and apply the book of Job. Nothing earth shattering or stunning, but overall it is solid with a few really good insights. It is not so much a commentary as a series of expositions.
This book is not a commentary on the book of Job, but is more like a series of expositional sermons. It provides some great theological and pastoral insights into Job.

Few stories in the Bible are as well-known or as misunderstood as the story of Job. Jackson tackles this colossus with aplomb, trekking through the text with veracity and precision.
