The Mystery of Suffering and God's Sovereignty
An in-depth exposition of the book of Job
The realities of suffering
The character of God
Is God worthy of worship only because He blesses us? How should we respond to God when suffering comes into our lives? At the heart of the book of Job is a question about the character of God - and about how we should respond to Him. In this most recent title of the extensive Focus on the Bible series, Richard Belcher expertly deals with the difficult themes of this practical book, showing how it is still acutely applicable to the lives of believers.
Richard P. Belcher, Jr. is the John D. and Frances M. Gwin Professor of Old Testament and the Academic Dean at Reformed Theological Seminary Charlotte. He is also an ordained minister in the PCA and pastored an urban nondenominational church in Rochester, New York for ten years.

Belcher takes a new direction amongst Job commentaries. He is no ivory tower academic, theorising about suffering, or playing with the book's theology. Weaving in the story of little baby Pierce, this is a scholarly and reliable commentary with a real human touch.
Jared Hood, Old Testament Lecturer, Presbyterian Theological College, Melbourne
This very readable commentary combines scholarly insight with pastoral compassion as it addresses the question of how we should respond to God when suffering comes into our lives. Throughout the commentary, he shows how the message of the book of Job points to Christ the righteous sufferer. His summary statements are golden.
