The silence of heaven is a theme that is explored in this commentary. Job cries out to God, but his prayer remains unanswered. There are times when we pray to God day and night for something, but our prayers remain answered. Heaven is silent towards us, and we feel as though we are all alone in the world.

Job spends seven days in silence with no hope of a happy future ahead of him. Anyone who has had misfortune, or a relationship that has come to an unforeseen end, will know what it's like to be in emotional mourning with no immediate sense of a happy future. This is where I connect with Job, and this is where the commentary works for me.

The commentary also highlights the heartlessness of Job's friends and their lack of sympathy for him. If you've ever been sacked from your job, or made redundant and ended up signing on the dole, you'll come across friends, acquaintances and neighbours who have no sympathy for you. As far as they are concerned, you are living off their taxes. This is where Job is relevant today to the average person, particularly the unemployed man.

I must admit this book is must get for those who are exploring and learning about the book of Job and about the points and lessons that can be learned about God's hand in suffering in the world. Also it will reveal common misconceptions that we may have about how God can let 'good people suffer'. The book gives a through explanation of the book of Job as well as giving examples of real life situations to understand each point the writer makes.
