One of the most exciting and challenging books of the Bible, Job is a literary work of great majesty and power. In this commentary, John C. L. Gibson helps contemporary readers explore the timeless story of the afflicted Job and its meaning for today.
Carrying forward brilliantly the pattern established by Barclay's New Testament series, the Daily Study Bible has been extended to cover the entire Old Testament as well. Invaluable for individual devotional study, for group discussion, and for classroom use, the Daily Study Bible provides a useful, reliable, and eminently readable way to discover what the Scriptures were saying then and what God is saying today.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The book of Job is most interesting. A man with faith. A secret that belongs to God. And job says: 'I'll keep hoeing' to his friends who feel the world will soon come to an end. The author has done well with Job. And like other books I have read: The Last Trumpet and the Woodbridge Demon, again I see a Job writing of end times. And Billy Graham's Storm Warning [s]. All books for our present situation, to be knowledgable, and confront the Last Trumpet like Job, and the Storm that seems to follow him.
