The book of Job, an enigmatic but powerful book in the Old Testament canon, raises universal questions about suffering and God’s relationship to both the cause of anguish and those who endure it. The ideas and questions of theodicy, divine justice, and divine power that arise and challenge Job’s life still resonate with our lives today. Chase’s commentary in the Belief series not only wrestles with the issues raised by the text, but it also probes the depths of spiritual theology in the book of Job.
Steven Chase is Studium Scholar at Saint Benedict’s Monastery in St. Joseph, Minnesota. He has taught at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Michigan, and is the former President of the Society for the Study of Christian Spirituality.

ABOUT THE SERIES
The volumes in Belief: A Theological Commentary on the Bible from Westminster John Knox Press offer a fresh and invigorating approach to all the books of the Bible. Building on a wide range of sources from biblical studies, the history of theology, the church's liturgical and musical traditions, contemporary culture, and the Christian tradition, noted scholars focus less on traditional historical and literary angles in favor of a theologically focused commentary that considers the contemporary relevance of the texts. This series is an invaluable resource for those who want to probe beyond the backgrounds and words of biblical texts to their deep theological and ethical meanings for the church today.
