The book Job is not the easiest book to get in tune with but this commentary takes the broader issues of theology in the book and helps such things - which are often academic - to become a part of faith in everyday situations.

This covers the book well and helps understand some of the background. Each character is explained helpfully.
There is little coverage of different views but as a Bible Study aid it is helpful and comprehensive.

Good Study On The Book Of Job 8 Sept. 2009
By Michael Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Be Patient" is another title in the "Be" series by Warren Wiersbe. This particular title focuses on the Book of Job and the main characters (besides God and the devil) are: Job, four men who attempted to comfort him at first but ended up rebuking him (Eliphaz, Bildad, Zophar, and Elihu).

Job's "comforters" attempted to label his circumstances (bad health, losing his kids and property, etc.) as a result of his sin. Those who read the Book of Job know otherwise - sometimes we suffer because of life in general and not because of our own sin. In the end, God vindicates Job and is critical of his "comforters".

Wiersbe summarizes the Book of Job for the reader and offers his explanations which seem to be biblically-based. The book is a good read and the narrrative flows smoothly. Contrary to an earlier reveiwer, I did not get the impression that Wiersbe was giving "pat" answers to Job's situation without any sympathy. Quite the contrary, Wiersbe has served in the ministry in various roles and I imagine he has sympathized with and supported people during their own personal trials.

Read, enjoy, and be encouraged! Recommended.

Warren Wiersbe has again written a concise, easy to understand, commentary on the book of Job included in his Be Series. I had previously read through the book of Job but had never fully realized the extent of Job's suffering and his incredible faith until I began studying the book of Job along with Dr. Wiersbe's book. I would recommend any of Warren Wiersbe's books. They are biblically sound and easy to use for study.

Not verse by verse commentary as I wanted. 23 Dec. 2013
By 24th chance - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book "waiting on God in difficult times" by Warren Wiersbe is a great book explaning generally the Bible book of Job and the larger picture.It does not go verse by verse nor does he agree with me the about the leviathin.Still,I learned a lot and all in all a solid book about poor Job,his 3 friends,a wiser young friend,and Gods rebuttal.

Wiersbe does it again 8 Aug. 2013
By C. Ricucci - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Warren Wiersbe is one of my favorite Bible commentators because of his writing style. It's almost conversational, very easy and straightforward reading, and rich with thought and detail. More than 20 years ago I asked for (and received) Wiersbe's 2-volume BE series on the New Testament as a Christmas present, and I often read it for pleasure, not necessarily as part of a Bible study but just because it's so interesting and reads like a Bible story book. This book, Be Patient (Job): Waiting on God in Difficult Times (The BE Series Commentary) is a very interesting and helpful book about Job. Having grown up with the Bible, I know the story well, but Wiersbe's book provided a deeper insight to Job's suffering and the lessons we can learn about how he responded to it and his relationship with God. Highly recommended.
