Human Consciousness of God in the Book of Job: A Theological and Psychological Commentary (Hardback)Dr Jeffrey Boss (author)
"Human Consciousness of God" is the first commentary on the book of "Job" to trace Job's relationship with God in a work of universal spirituality. The most important - and unique - element in Jeffrey Boss' approach is his examination of "Job" from a psychological perspective. However the work also takes into account the history of interpretation of the book, giving due attention to questions surrounding the text's coherence, authorship and provenance. It is, at the same time, a valuable new commentary on the Hebrew "Masoretic Text of Job". The book opens with an introduction enabling those unfamiliar with the book of "Job", or with recent scholarship to appreciate it and engage with it. Then follows the full commentary which draws attention to the development of Job's character and his relationship with God. Finally, the author presents his conclusions following the work together with a detailed bibliography.
