Overview

The book of Job is considered by many to be the crown jewel of biblical literature. It centers on the central theme of Job’s struggle. Samuel Balentine presents the book of Job as a truly astonishing declaration about what it means to live in a world where order breaks down and chaos runs amok, where the innocent suffer and the wicked thrive, where cries for help go unanswered. He leads readers on an in-depth and far-reaching look at the nature of the book of Job. Balentine also helpfully examines various attempts by many others who have explored Job’s essential struggle.
