P & R Publishing Crying Out for Vindication: The Gospel According to Job, The Gospel According to The Old Testament Series

This commentary is a discerning look at what the Book of Job can teach us about seasons of crying out, thinking, acting, listening, and recovering. Balancing dramatic anecdotes and careful biblical exposition, Jackson affirms that Job's hope was the same as ours, and that in Jesus our questions are resolved, our faith vindicated, and our suffering redeemed.

David R. Jackson (M.Div., Th.M., Westminster Theological Seminary; Ph.D., University of Sydney) is head of biblical studies at William Carey School, Australia, and an honorary associate at the University of Sydney.

This commentary is amazing! The author beautifully ties together the faith and suffering of Job with that of our Lord Jesus, and also puts the reader in the position of not only Job, but also his friends/accusers. I was particularly moved as Dr. Jackson explains how Job understood his righteousness as not coming from his works, but rather from the justice and justness of God. Therefore, he would not give a false confession, but rather suffered as he sought a mediator with God. I strongly recommend this to any and all who want to know the Book of Job in a meaningful way and who want to see the glory of the Gospel throughout all of Scripture.
