Job, Vol. 13 in the Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries, is commented upon by Francis I. Andersen. The author demonstrates to the reader that the book of Job is a book about unchanging human realities--war, destitution, sickness, humiliation, bereavement, depression, the unchanging goodness of God, who transforms our human agony into justice, kindness, love and joy. It is about 'the terror of the Lord' (2 Cor. 5:11) and His great tenderness (James 5:11). It is the story of one man who held on to his life in God with a faith that survived the torments of utter loss and expanded into new realms of wonder and delight.
Francis Anderson writes, "Job is a prodigious book in the vast range of its ideas, in its broad coverage of human experience, in the intensity of its passions, 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."
