Top Five Commentaries on Job
Ligonier Ministries has a list and discussion of their top five commentaries on Job. I would replace Smick with Gerald Wilson (NIBC) and add Zuck in The Bible Knowledge Commentary to the runners-up. In any case, the top five Keith Mathison has listed are:
1. David J.A. Clines -- Job 1-20; Job 21-37 (Word Biblical Commentary, 1989, 2006).
2. John Hartley -- The Book of Job (New International Commentary on the Old Testament, 1988).
3. Francis I. Andersen -- Job (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries, 1976).
4. Elmer Smick -- "Job" in The Expositor's Bible Commentary (1984).
5. David Atkinson -- The Message of Job (The Bible Speaks Today, 1991).
