The Biblical Job (A Paragon of Piety and Excellence) is an excellent summary of the book of Job. Ronke Ruth Alao breaks Job’s loss down into easily understandable parts and summarizes each one. Starting with the loss of his children, and moving on to his health, wealth, wife and friends, each chapter breaks down a portion of Job’s story and compares it to other biblical figures, as well as how each is applicable in Christian life today. Even though Job lost everything he had, he still did not curse God. In the end God gave him exceedingly more than he had lost in the first place.
Ronke Ruth Alao does a fantastic job of breaking down the book of Job into easily understandable portions. With all the loss and rejection, the book of Job can be a hard book to understand. What I like most about this study is that Ronke Ruth Alao gives biblical truths and not half-hearted opinions. She bases her findings on scripture and seems to have done plenty of research on the topic. Further, she not only speaks of Job and his trials, but compares him to other biblical figures who have experienced some of the same type of issues he has. Of course, no one had it as tough as Job, but she easily finds other biblical instances to compare with. The best part of The Biblical Job was when God rebuked his friends and told them to ask Job to pray for them. Who can argue with that? Great work, making a confusing book much more understandable and relatable.
