Discovering the Message of Job
Layton Talbert, Bob Jones University Press, 392 Pages, Paper, $17.95
BJU Press has been coming out with excellent commentaries by qualified Bible teachers in recent years, and this one on the book of Job is no exception. As with others, this work combines scholarship with practical, readable material. Some works on Job place an undue emphasis on human suffering (and seeing Job’s trials and their significances is certainly unavoidable and necessary). In reality the sovereign God must be the proper focus, and this work passes the test. The book offers a bibliography (the most helpful entries marked with asterisks) and abundant notes.
