Author Peter Williams accepts that Job was a historical figure who faced up to real problems about his own suffering, about God’s Justice and Government, and about the malignancy of evil in the world. Job is probably one of the world’s oldest books and certainly not the easiest to understand, but it conveys some very powerful lessons for today. The author believes that we would greatly benefit by learning from this great man something of the meaning of victory over personal affliction, and the triumph of true faith in Almighty God.
Peter Williams is author of other books published by Day One Publications, including Church on the move (An expositional commentary on the Acts of the Apostles), Jonah—running from God (An expositional commentary) and From Eden to Egypt (Exploring the Genesis themes). He and his wife, Brenda, live in Bournemouth. They have a son and daughter and three grandsons.
‘The main feature of the book is its God-centred perspective. There is not a chapter which fails to point our eyes to the majesty of heaven. The author’s use of illustration and application is a model of true exposition.’
