Overview
The conclusion to Dr. David Clines' monumental study of the Book of Job
This is the concluding volume in David Clines's monumental three-volume study of the Book of Job. This volume is devoted entirely to the response of the Lord from the tempest to Job, together with the replies of Job (Job 38-42), presenting the Lord's own explanation of his manifold purposes in creation and bringing to an unexpected conclusion Job's dramatic quest for justice.In small type all the detailed problems of the Hebrew text are thoroughly handled, but the Commentary itself is written for the non-technical reader, always bringing out the driving force of the argument and the drama of the book. The Explanations at the end of each chapter brilliantly summarize the views of the speakers and offer thoughtful reflections on their theological value.The volume concludes with a unique 350-page Bibliography of virtually everything that has been written about the Book of Job, including its influence on art, music and literature.

Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Job 38-42 (Word Biblical Commentary V18B)?

some awkward proposals in a great work  Nov 1, 2008
Though I by no means want to underscore some of the values of Clines proposals on the arrangement, I do want to point out the very unlikelihood of his presupposition. Clines thinks that 27:7-23 is in fact spoken by Sophar and that 28 is spoken by Elihu (32-37). Elihu's speech is thereupon transposed between 27 and 28. Accounting for such a great transposition he believes that a major mistake was made on a great Job-scroll, in analogy to the great Isaiah scroll. Counting the number of words in Job 1-27 and Job 32-37 and 28-31 and comparing them to the seams in the Isaiah scroll, the number of word in each column, he believes by accident Elihu's part was sawn after 28-31 to which it should have preceded. This Qumran scroll was thereupon taken by the Masoretes to compose our current book. First, we hardly have evidence that Masoretes depended so strongly on text that we have now found in Qumran and we have a lot of counterevidence instead. Second if the biblical scrolls in Qumran were adopted in the community, we should not forget the rivalry with the Jerusalem priestly class with its own temple text authority with regard to the handing down of text down to the ben Asher generation. Third and most of all, Job has been poorly preserved in Qumran. Is it more than a historical conjecture to suppose that once there was no such paucity, because there was a large scroll, that we now no longer possess?
I am confident that Clines' work on Job will serve pastors and exegetes, but I would be cautious to adopt some of his proposals
 
Another fastidious effort  Apr 7, 2007
Dr. Clines' two volumes on Job* (Thomas Nelson) bring to a conclusion his monumental study of the Book of Job, a work begun more than 15 years ago (Job 1-20). With a thoroughgoing exegesis characteristic of his endeavors in volume one, Clines unpacks the numerous linguistic challenges that Job presents to the modern reader. Though indispensable to the scholar, these two volumes are not necessarily inaccessible to laymen. Included in the third volume on Job (Job 38-42 (Word Biblical Commentary); to be published next year, is a 200-page index to all three volumes.
