Located within the Wisdom Literature of the Old Testament, the Book of
Job explores the topic of human suffering. Like many today, Job was
plagued with great anguish, confusion, and despair. However, he did not
allow his adversities to destroy his faith. In the midst of his gloom,
Job cried out to God, the only One who could rescue him. A study of the
Book of Job challenges believers today to rely on God in order to
weather the storms of life.
"Dr. Don Shackelford makes another important addition to the Truth for
Today Commentary series. Drawing from rich scholarship and a lifetime of
service, Shackelford describes and examines the theology and truths of
life offered by the Book of Job. He challenges readers to dig more
deeply into the text in order to grow spiritually and walk more closely
with God. This commentary belongs in the libraries of all ministers of
