Item description for Job: An Introduction and Commentary (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries) by Francis I. Andersen...

Overview
Francis Andersen calls the book of Job "one of the bests gifts of God to men." It is the story of one man's agony "reaching out to the mystery of God, beyond words and explanations." He discusses Job's vast range of ideas, its broad coverage of human experience, the intensity of its passion and the immensity of its concept of God.

Publishers Description
For Francis Andersen, the Old Testament book about Job is one of the supreme offerings of the human mind to the living God, and one of the best gifts of God to humanity. "The task of understanding it is as rewarding as it is strenuous. . . . One is constantly amazed at its audacious theology and at the magnitude of its intellectual achievement. Job is a prodigious book in the vast range of its ideas, in its broad coverage of human experience, in the intensity of its passion, in the immensity of its concept of God, and not least in its superb literary craftsmanship. . . . From one man's agony it reaches out to the mystery of God, beyond words and explanations." The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series. These commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. The goal throughout is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

Reviews - What do customers think about Job: An Introduction and Commentary (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries)?

Excellent overview and helpful perspective  Jan 5, 2005
This commentary is not the best for a verse-by-verse analysis of the text (it's not that long) but Anderson provides an excellent overview of the Book of Job that does a good job of appreciating the unmatched nature of this monumental work. The overview also deals concisely with most of the critical controversies that have arisen. The commentary frankly acknowledges a Christian woldview, but still argues from a standard, scholarly perspective. Anderson writes well, but the writing is at a scholarly level and uses quite a few two-dollar words, so I had to make a few runs to the dictionary (not a bad thing, really). For me, this commentary has enhanced my understanding of the Book of Job as a magnificent literary achievement, while also encouraging my faith. I like it a lot.
