Highlights of This Volume
Is suffering incompatible with serving God? In the Book of Job the problem of human pain confronts the person of God. The book leads to the conclusion that God's goodness and greatness deserves and demands our love and worship. Robert Alden's commentary serves as a skillful and sensitive guide through this highly relevant handbook for suffering servants of God.
About the Author
Robert L. Alden is a contributor to numerous scholarly journals and reference works. Dr. Alden has written commentaries on Psalms, Proverbs, and Song of Solomon. He was also one of the editors on the New International Version bible.
Teaching and preaching Job has never been an easy task, but Bob Alden's Job will excite many who previously were reticent to undertake the task. Alden is especially effective in the numerous word studies that fill this new high water mark for evangelical scholarship in the Book of Job.
This commentary makes an outstanding contribution to the literature on this continuously fascinating and puzzling book. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in exploring the wealth of material in this book about a man who suffered intensely.
