Overview

Arguably the oldest book in the Bible, the book of Job has a surprising amount to say about some of the newest scientific discoveries and controversies. Far from a book that is just about suffering, Job is filled with rich insight into both ancient and modern questions about

  • The formation of the world
  • The difference between animals and humans
  • Cosmology
  • Dinosaurs and the fossil record
  • Global warming and how to care for creation
  • And more

With careful consideration and exegesis, internationally-known astrophysicist and Christian apologist Hugh Ross adds yet another compelling argument to the case for the veracity of the biblical commentary on the history of the universe, Earth, life, and humanity. Hidden Treasures in the Book of Job shows that the Bible is an accurate predictor of scientific discoveries and a trustworthy source of scientific information, and that the book of Scripture and the book of nature are consistent both internally and externally.

Praise for the Print Edition

Yet another sparkling gem from the treasure house that is the mind of Hugh Ross! A fabulous and typically thoughtful treatment of many vitally important subjects.

—Eric Metaxas, American author

This is a brilliant, insightful, and provocative book, filled with nuggets from digging deeply into the hidden treasures of the book of Job.

Norman L. Geisler, cofounder and former dean, Southern Evangelical Seminary

Surprising and accurate scientific insights few consider. Hugh Ross brilliantly analyzes these details with great scrutiny to highlight the fact that Scripture presents compelling information regarding our greatest scientific complexities. I highly recommend this work for those considering the evidence of the Bible’s scientific claims.

—John Ankerberg, founder and president of The John Ankerberg Show

This book is an elegant explanation of how Scripture, the scientific facts of nature, and the tragedy of human suffering all point people to God. It’s sophisticated and simple and arguably groundbreaking. I can’t wait to use it in the classroom.

Sarah Sumner, former dean, A.W. Tozer Theological Seminary

A treasure in and of itself. It is enormously engaging in both its content and its style. It is one of the most up-to-date scientific, as well as biblical, responses in the evolution, creation, young earth debate, yet all offered with clear facts, gentleness of tone, and convincing logic.

Walter C. Kaiser Jr., emeritus president, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
