Job reveals a God we can trust, even in our darkest moments. Barry G. Webb explores the book of Job as a reflection on the paradox of righteous suffering. Job confronts the troubling issues that life throws at us as we try to live in trusting obedience to God. Wisdom shows us how to live in relation to God when we don't have answers for all of life's problems. With detailed exegesis and biblical-theological synthesis, Webb explores Job's unique theology of creation, evil, wisdom, justice, redemption, and God's character, tracing these themes across the canon. The Evangelical Biblical Theology Commentary (EBTC) series locates each biblical book within redemptive history and illuminates its unique theological contributions. All EBTC volumes feature informed exegetical treatment of the biblical book and thorough discussion of its most important theological themes in relation to the canon--all in a style that is useful and accessible to students of Scripture.
