Why do people suffer? What is God's role in suffering? How can we help those who suffer?

The book of Job is all about human suffering. Its portrayal of one man's anguish, the ineffective responses of his friends, and his struggle for faith and understanding mirrors our own experiences in the world.

David Atkinson offers a pastoral exploration of Job's story. His compelling exposition shows the power of the book of Job to reach into our human situation and engage with our human needs. It offers, he believes, the strong comfort that comes from knowing someone else has been there before. The message of Job is both a comfort to us in our own suffering and a model for our ministry to others in pain.

Part of the beloved Bible Speaks Today series, The Message of Job offers an insightful, readable exposition of the biblical text and thought-provoking discussion of how its meaning relates to contemporary life. Used by students and teachers around the world, The Bible Speaks Today commentaries are ideal for those studying or preaching the Bible and anyone who wants to delve deeper into the text.

This revised edition of a classic volume features lightly updated language and current NIV Scripture quotations with a new interior design.
