Hartley’s commentary is quite recent (1990) and is considered a good complement to Clines’. Tremper Longman calls it “a major contribution to the study of the book” and explains “this is because it examines all the facets of the book, not necessarily because it is terribly original. It is solidly evangelical in its approach and very well researched.” [Full Review]

When teaching our Adult Sunday School class on Job, my old Bible College Proffesor recommended this volume and It opened the Book of Job to me in new and exciting ways. I can't praise it enough. All my other re3ferences regarding Job are measured against this one.

Hartley's commentary on Job is not as comprehensive or technical as Clines' work, but it is not written at an introductory level either. It is a thorough and demanding work that supplements Clines well. Readers will find much insight into the meaning of Job here. Highly recommended. [Full Review]

Hartley’s engaging scholarship and reasonable presentation edge it past Alden (NAC, 1994), a very close second.
Good Evangelical survey and interaction with relevant secondary literature. [Full Review]
