Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Christopher Ash writes beautifully--this book is a delight to read! But that isn''t its greatest strength. Nor is the fact that these pages are filled with nuanced and fresh exegetical insights. Christopher has succeeded in producing the richest, most moving, most deeply cross-centered and God-glorifying treatment of Job I have ever read. This book marries brilliant explanation with powerful gospel-driven application. It is simply a ''must-have'' resource for anyone intending to preach through Job." --J. Gary Millar, Principal, Queensland Theological Colle author, Now Choose Life "This is one of the finest Biblical commentaries I have had the privilege to read, and certainly the best I know on the wonderful but perplexing book of Job. Christopher Ash takes us into the depths of this book, taking no shortcuts. He guides us through the details, helping us to see the brilliance of the poetry and the profundity of the questions raised. More than this he helps us to see how the sufferings of Jesus shed brilliant light into the darkest corners of Job''s experience. In turn the book of Job deepens our understanding of Jesus'' blameless suffering, and the suffering and darkness experienced by those who share in the sufferings of Christ. This is a powerfully edifying exposition." --John Woodhouse, Former Principal, Moore Theological College "If like me, you have shied away from the book of Job, daunted by its structure and length, do not despair, help has arrived! Christopher Ash has performed a noble service by ''bashing his head'' against the text and providing us with such a lucid, wonderfully helpful commentary. It is both mind-stretching and heart-warming as it reminds us that like the rest of the Bible, Job is ultimately a book about Jesus." --Alistair Begg, Senior Pastor, Parkside Church, Cleveland, Ohio "This is the book for any who, like me, have been both fascinated and frightened by Job. Christopher Ash brilliantly engages with the interpretive challenge of understanding the text and the emotional challenge of being confronted by the awful reality of suffering and evil in the world. His exposition combines sober realism about what we can expect in the life of faith and great encouragement as we are pointed to the sufferings and glory of Christ." --Vaughan Roberts, Rector of St Ebbe''s, Oxford, Engl Director, The Proclamation Trust; author, God''s Big Picture "A magnificent study of one of the least read and understood books of the Bible. Here is meticulous, detailed exploration of the text, its vocabulary and poetic structure, which opens up its richness and complexity with interpretive sensitivity. This in turn produces a narrative reading that illuminates the revelatory argument of the book as a whole, with its conflict between redemptive grace and religious systems. ''Honest grappling'' is its characteristic as the imponderable questions of the human condition are played out through the drama of Job''s individual agony. But this is also a preacher''s book, full of human empathy and applicatory wisdom providing nourishment for the deepest recesses of the soul. Supremely, it is a book not about Job''s suffering, but about Job''s God, which leads us to the ultimate answers to all our human enigmas in the reality of Jesus Christ and him crucified. This is a book to return to again and again as a valuable tool to unpack the message of Job in a generation to whom it is strikingly relevant." --David Jackman, Former President, Proclamation Trust, London, England "This book has reinforced my general rule, ''If Christopher Ash has written it, I should definitely read it.'' It is an outstanding exposition of this dramatic but difficult book, at the same time eminently accessible, yet profoundly stretching and thought-provoking. As the book''s chapters are opened up masterfully, characteristic attention to textual detail is enriched by a theological trajector. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_1433513129
