“In the Old Testament we read God’s word as it was spoken to his people Israel. Today, thousands of years later, we hear in these thirty-nine books his inspired and authoritative message for us.” These twin convictions, shared by all of the contributors to The New International Commentary on the Old Testament, define the goal of this ambitious series of commentaries. For those many modern readers who find the Old Testament to be strange and foreign soil, the NICOT series serves as an authoritative guide bridging the cultural gap between today’s world and the world of ancient Israel. Each NICOT volume aims to help us hear God’s word as clearly as possible. Scholars, pastors, and serious Bible students will welcome the fresh light that this commentary series casts on ancient yet familiar biblical texts. The contributors apply their proven scholarly expertise and wide experience as teachers to illumine our understanding of the Old Testament. As gifted writers, they present the results of the best recent research in an interesting manner. Each commentary opens with an introduction to the biblical book, looking especially at questions concerning its background, authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology. A select bibliography also points readers to resources for their own study. The author’s own translation from the original Hebrew forms the basis of the commentary proper. Verse-by-verse comments nicely balance in-depth discussions of technical matters — textual criticism, critical problems, and so on — with exposition of the biblical writer’s theology and its implications for the life of faith today.

Yozshugore
Good introduction. Exposition is ok but not comfortable with some of his reconstructions of the order of the text. Better to deal with the book in it's canonical form and not conjecturing what it should be according to what some people think is a logical order.
Gaua
The book offer much more detail than I needed on the background, languages, etc. However it is an excellent work for exploring the lessons or us through the suffering of Job. Strong recommend on this book.
Meztisho
Conservative scholarship with alternative interpretations presented. Verse by verse commentary, historical/socio-cultural exposition and extensive footnotes. In addition, author displays lyrical writing skills detailing both profound spiritual and epic literary significance of Book of Job. Highly recommended.
Mori
Good book
Grotilar
Not in great condition but usable. The original paper was a bad quality and it is going to decay further, but it is readable and useful for my purposes.
Delalbine
fine volume

Conservative, had some helpful material
I have found that excellent commentaries on the Book of Job are hard to come by. Thankfully, John E. Hartley's commentary goes a long way to filling the gap. While the main theme of the book can be rather simply stated, the interpretation of various passages and the intentions of the speakers are not. The Hebrew itself presents a definite challenge, being somewhat different from that found in any other book of the Old Testament. Hartley does an excellent job of providing interpretation both of the text itself and of the intent of the speeches that comprise most of the book. Moreover, he is fair to those interpretations with which he disagrees. Although scholarly in his approach, Hartley writes clearly and in a way that is accessible to the layperson. More technical matters, including comments on the Hebrew text, are confined to the footnotes, which allows those so inclined to pursue these issues while at the same time not cluttering up the body of the text itself.

In addition to the commentary on the text of Job, Hartley has some excellent introductory material. Some theological conservatives will not be happy with his dating of the writing of Job in the 7th century B.C. However, as he does throughout his commentary, he is fair to those who would assign an earlier or a later date to the book and presents an excellent case for this slightly pre-exilic dating.

Hartley also does a great job in his introduction of showing how Elihu fits into the overall literary piece. As those with some familiarity with Job are aware, the place of Elihu has been questioned. He is not spoken of prior to his speech. Nor is he mentioned in the postlude to the book. This has caused some to conclude that Elihu's speech represents a later insertion. Hartley looks in some detail at this issue and provides an excellent argument for the integrity of the entire book of Job.
