This is the best commentary on Job I've read. I took an intensive on Job this semester and this book by far was the best one I read for a paper I had to do. I read most of the other major ones. Some were even longer but none had the insight that Janzen brought to the table. He was deep and yet easy to understand. If you're looking for commentaries on Job, put this on the top of your list.
