Item Description...
Representative excerpt from endorsements:
ReitmanI S excellent expostion of the books ofJob and Ecclesiastes shows how unjust suffering and self-motivated ambitious schemes result in frustration and confusion, and how only the fear of God can resolve disillusionment. Here is a remarkably perceptive study of two often-neglected wisdom books whose messages are desperately needed today. Any student of these two books will be spiritually enriched by this exposition. -Roy B. Zuck, ThD Editor, Bibliotheca Sacra, and Professor Emeritus in Bible Exposition Dallas Theological Seminary

Contents of book Written for serious Bible students-pastors, Sunday School teachers, seminary students, missionaries, counselors, spiritual directors, and any other" agents of the Creator"- this innovative commentary was conceived to identify" the author's intended meaning as expressed in the biblical text." Combining a transparent hermeneutical methodology with a "canonical-linguistic" theological reading of these two books of Old Testament Wisdom, Dr. Reitman explores much of the territory left uncharted by available verse-by-verse exegetical treatments.

For each section ofJob and Ecclesiastes, Reitman's comparative exposition delineates the author's literary strategy (literary style and textual design), communicative
intent (the message[s] that were woven into the text), and strategic intent (the "fitting response" to be evoked from the reader). As a result, readers who are seriously interested
in applying the text to their lives can readily recognize the intended connection between the author's message and an appropriate or "suitable" reader response to the message that" respects" the author's intended meaning.

Dr. Reitman introduces and concludes the commentary with transparent first person accounts of his own trials, disillusionment, and experience in medical ethics and military medicine that will help the reader appreciate how acutely relevant these two books are to the lives of 21st
Century Christians. The prominent themes-self-sufficiency, adversity, disillusionment, the call to brokenness, mourning, the "fear of God," and accepting our portion from God as chosen agents of his purposes-all readily transfer to our contemporary context.
