What Reformed material is available for a small group study on the book of Job?


I co-lead a small group of long time Christians interested in studying the book of Job as part of our group meetings.  Can anyone recommend specific study material, preferably from a Reformed perspective.

Thanks, Bill

Dear Bill,

On the Book of Job, I would recommend "A Battle for Righteousness" by K.J. Popma, a Dutch scholar who wrote this book in the 1950's.  I have translated and published this from the Dutch, and have lots of copies still available.

Write me your address and I will send you a copy for you to review.

Eugene Peterson calls it, "... a new friend into our English speaking communities of faith. Popma, ..., gives us Job as true Christian Gospel, a profound immersion in God's ways with us."

Try "The Storm Breaks" by Derek Thomas, part of the Welwyn Commentary Series, "Crying out for Vindication" by David R. Jackson, part of the Gospel According to the Old Testament Series, and Mike Mason's "The Gospel According to Job".

Sorry to say that Faith Alive Christian Resources doesn't have anything current on Job. We did have it in the Revelation series some years ago. You might be able to find a used copy on Amazon or through another seller. It was titled Job: Challenging a Silent God (written by Joel Kok) and published under our old name, CRC Publications.

Thanks Alina.  There is a used copy available via Amazon.  I have found seven books on this topic and now need to select one without reading each of them.
