Item description for The Book of Job: Why Do the Innocent Suffer? (Classic Bible Series) by Alice Thomas Ellis...
Job is probably one of the best-known and most touching characters from the Bible. The Book of Job is the first great work of ancient literature to explore in depth the problem of undeserved suffering. Such is the enormous influence of this poetic masterpiece that it is now commonplace to refer to "the patience of Job." This volume combines the text of the "Book of Job" with essays that show why the trials of Job still resonate so powerfully today.

The Book of Job in poetry format Jul 20, 2000
This book is split into four sections. The first three sections (I am counting the foreword as one) give additional "general" insight into Job, the relevancy of the different characters and famous quotations from Job. The bulk of the book is the KJV version of Job without chapter and verse broken into seven parts.
I found this book interesting from an academic point of view but disappointing from a spirit study guide. While the text in poetry format gives a new perspective on Job, it doesn't give study guidance to the Biblical text. I also found their interpretation of Job traditionally "safe".
All in all, Job with explanation but no interpretation.
