Reviews - What do customers think about Sitting with Job: Selected Studies on the Book of Job?
An eclectic and insightful collection of articles Jun 12, 2001
Who's going to read a review of an out-of-print book? But "Sitting With Job" deserves to have some stars next to its title. I used this book in an excellent class on the book of Job at Biola University taught by my favorite professor there, Dr. Ed Curtis.
The Articles in the book are arranged in two parts. Part I includes 12 articles under the heading "Overviews of the Book of Job". David Clines and Philip Yancey have excellent articles in that section.
Part II includes 22 articles under the heading "Specific Themes and Passages in the Book of Job". These articles cover topics like "Mythology and the Book of Job; "Where Job's Comforters Went Wrong"; "Wisdom in the Book of Job"; "The Theophany of Job"; and "Job: Repentant or Rebellious." Mark Littleton's article is among the best in this section.
No other book that I've seen offers such a broad and deep presentation of the structure and meaning of the book of Job. Zuck brings together authors who are not satisfied to simply describe the superficial landscape of Job, but who are also willing to wrestle with the thorny issues that it raises.
