The Book of JOB


E.W. Bullinger

The oldest lesson in the world, as seen in the Book of Job, is that man's way is not necessarily God's way. In this study, E. W. Bullinger shows how the perfect workmanship of God is exhibited in our lives, even in times of great adversity. This lesson is essential to enjoying peace with God for time and eternity.

Bullinger's commentary on the most ancient book of the Bible offers insights into God's work in our lives. The author also gives us a distinctive translation of the Book of Job with explanatory notes and follows the literary and critical style of the book. In addition, figures of speech and divine names and titles are given special attention. Every Bible student will find much practical help in this unique approach to the Book of Job.
