From the Back Cover
This biblical narrative tells today's Christians about God without actually mentioning him.

Top customer reviews
Karen Jobes doesn't mess about with creating solutions to the puzzles of the text with fanciful notions of piety or simply baddies and goodies. Rather she responsibly handles the text and draws out the various themes running through the book in a very readable way, with the usual series application sections. The introduction is particularly good. But as with any commentary, don't just assume what she says is right - think about it!
Definitely worth having and should prove useful for you.
For me, wanting an introductory - intermediate level commentary, of conservative evangelical perspective, for devotional use, this is spot on.
Very readable narrative style, a reasonable ammount of background, doesn't get bogged down in polemics with critical reviewers.
Well worthy of five stars.
