Do we truly understand the Book of Job? Can we fathom the argumentation set forth in this profound literature? What can it tell us about faith and suffering?
To assist us in answering these questions, Roy B. Suck has enlisted the aid of respected Old Testament scholars who have analyzed the Book of Job and garnered keen insights into Job's world and the dialog found in this fascinating book.
Among the contributors are D. A. Carson, Edwin Good, R. Laird Harris, Matitiahu Tsevat, Claus Westermann, and others, all of whom have made significant contributions to our understanding of the Book of Job. This collection also draws on commentators of the past. Together they provide a penetrating guide to the salient issues and key texts, giving us an anthology that brings together some of the best thinking available on an often misunderstood book of the Bible.
Part 1 of 'Sitting with Job' provides an overview of the structure, purpose, and message of Job; Part 2 focuses on specific themes and passages.
