4.0 out of 5 stars Attractive and readable
Book arrived in time and in good condition. The style of this series is very readable, and treats the Book of Job thematically rather than verse-by-verse: there's plenty of detail, but it's not easy to track down comments on a particular verse. This makes it a book to read through as a study project book on Job, rather than one to pull off the reference shelf to check...

2.0 out of 5 stars I think this misses the point!
To be fair I would probably give this 2 1/2 stars if I could. This isn't a bad commentary as it does make some good points and is up to the standard of the BST commentaries in that it is readable and has enough detail on the technical points of the book. However, its subtitle 'Suffering and Grace' shows, in my opinion, that it has missed the major theme of the book. No...

This review is from: The Message of Job: Suffering and Grace (The Bible Speaks Today) (Paperback)
Book arrived in time and in good condition. The style of this series is very readable, and treats the Book of Job thematically rather than verse-by-verse: there's plenty of detail, but it's not easy to track down comments on a particular verse. This makes it a book to read through as a study project book on Job, rather than one to pull off the reference shelf to check the meaning of a puzzling verse. Written in 1991, but timeless and good.

2.0 out of 5 stars I think this misses the point!, 5 April 2014
This review is from: The Message of Job: Suffering and Grace (The Bible Speaks Today) (Paperback)
To be fair I would probably give this 2 1/2 stars if I could. This isn't a bad commentary as it does make some good points and is up to the standard of the BST commentaries in that it is readable and has enough detail on the technical points of the book. However, its subtitle 'Suffering and Grace' shows, in my opinion, that it has missed the major theme of the book. No one is denying that Job suffered terribly, but for me the question is why did he suffer? And the answer for me is that God has to be proved to be worthy of worship by Job despite his awful suffering, otherwise Satan slander stands unanswered! That said, this commentary is not without its merits and David Atkinson is no doubt more of a scholar than I will ever be! It is just that in my opinion he has missed the key theme of the book by a long way!

I have many books in this series. They vary in content as they do by author but they are always worth a look
