“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 men,” writes Francis Andersen. “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.”
