Publisher's Summary

Far from being an engaging fable, the account of Job in the Bible is one of the most historically and scientifically accurate records of the ancient world. 

Perhaps the oldest book in the Bible, the Book of Job touches on many subjects of science and history. This commentary on the controversial Book of Job is very different from most of the seminary and church teachings so prevalent today, for it attests to the historicity of a man named Job who understood at the end of his life that God cannot be "figured out", but He can most certainly be trusted.

Intelligent and Careful Examination of Job

What were the terms of Job's testing? How long did he suffer? Was Eliphaz's dream demonic? Did Job's wife abandon him? Why do we hardly consider she also lost her children? That last question is one which Mr. Morris does not answer in this book, but he does discuss that Job may have had two wives, and that the proposed second wife may have been the mother of his seven sons and three daughters. It isn't stated so anywhere in the Bible, so it is mere conjecture. The word Daysman is used, a term which means arbiter, judge, a mediator or intercessor. It becomes an easy study when a dictionary is used, but, if you are diligent about using only the King James Bible, no words will be unfamiliar. The fact that the King James is used helps to create continuity in study. In chapter 8, there is a discussion of behemoth, leviathan, dragons, and the serpent. Isaiah 27:1 speaks of leviathan, and is called serpent. Obviously, even in the time of Isaiah, leviathan was known to exist! I listened to this over the course of three days, mostly because I kept pausing to go back to further study the subject. Having my Bible and pen and paper was very useful. Mr. Morris presents a clear picture. How long did it take for news to reach Job's friends? It could have been weeks or months even. While I didn't really consider it before, it's helpful to understand, this was a long period of time. You will want to take the time, and make time, to study this. Dig in, work it out. This book does not consider the subject of suffering, but then, the book of Job is not about suffering. It is about testing. This book addresses this.

Beautifully written...

I’m impressed! This book is just what I’ve been looking for. The author uses the whole bible to explain the timeless, profound message of Job. A must read!

Totally worth reading!

Outstanding book on Job! way beyond what I expected - great narration as well. This book covers so many things about the earth in the beginning and Satans part in it all. Outstanding. Will listen to this many times over as it is filled with so much meat!

Creation Science and the Book of Job

This is one of the most in depth and encouraging studies of the Book of Job that I’ve ever come across. As a conservative Christian and a believer in the literal interpretation of the Bible, I found it refreshing and inciteful. I learned a lot about the time the Book of Job was written and by whom. As a younger Christian, I found Job to be disheartening and sad, but as I have grown older, I have found much peace in reading Job. I’ve often thought that with friends of the kind that Job had, who needs friends? And it has caused me to think long and hard about how I answer and comfort fellow Christians when they are suffering. Most of all I’ve come to understand that when we are suffering, we do not need pat answers or advice, we need LOVE . . . which Job did not receive, until he was vindicated by a loving and righteous God. I had never tied the book of Job to the importance of the Creation, as the author does, but it is very evident. And we humans have failed miserably . . . as we have with many of the other instructions given to us by the Lord. I am not 100% sure I am in complete agreement with the author that the purpose of the Book of Job is to bring His people back to the care, recognition and man’s obligation to have dominion over the earth, but I do see the correlation which he brings forth. There is deep wisdom to be mined from the Book of Job, and to me one of the most important is man’s relationship to God, i.e. we are NOT God and anything that we do to usurp God’s authority, to elevate ourselves to the place of God, or to assume ourselves as smart or as wise as God is to our own folly. This book is well worth a listen . . . or a re-listen.

Not really about Job

This is a book about creation and Jesus, loosely based on the book of Job. The author uses verses from Job to drag you off to Genesis or the New Testament. Moreover, he reads things into the text that clearly aren't there while ignoring the pitfall in his own logic. Example. He reads into the text a scientific description of the technology we call the television. Meanwhile he makes the claim that Job makes no scientific statements that are inaccurate. However, he admits that there were no pillars holding up the heavens and dismisses this as a figure of speech. I agree on the pillars being a figure of speech, but you can't have it both ways. There were more examples of claims bordering on ludicrous. However my biggest problem was his brushing over crucial elements of Job's story to run off on another tangent about creation or Jesus.

Enjoyable book!

I really enjoyed this book. I am really intrigued by the book of Job. There’s so many amazing things in the book of Job that this easy to listen to book breaks down enough of Job so you could have a better understanding of it and why God left it for us to read and study.

Mediocre

Not more than surface discussion. No mention of Rahab, Abbadon or other Mesopotamian myths. It’s as if they don’t fit into authors world view so are ignored. Lot of authors worldview is imposed onto book of Job.
