Talking About God is devoted to an elaboration of the nature of God in the Book of Job. By thoroughly examining the crucial problem of Job 42: 7-9 in which Job is commended and his friends (Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar) are rebuked for their talk of God, this book presents the main theme of the Book of Job as a unified whole and successfully investigates it from the theological perspectives that are shared between Job and his three friends as well as between God and Job. Insights from the common theology of the ancient Near East, the extraordinary characters of Joban literature, and inner-biblical interpretations of the Old Testament help modern readers understand major aspects of the Book of Job.

Reviews

I would encourage readers from beginning to advanced levels of knowledge about the Book of Job to use Duck-Woo Nam's book, which offers much information and provokes new thinking about Job. Commentary on the Book of Job will never be finished, but Nam guides the reader into major aspects of the book and its challenge to faith. (Marvin E. Tate, Senior Professor of Old Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky) This work tackles a subject too often lost in the flurry of composition and rhetorical research: what is the theology for the Book of Job? In un-packing the answers, Duck-Woo Nam has brought most of the book under scrutiny although focusing on one enigmatic text in the final chapter. Nam's answer to the enigma of how Job spoke better of God than did his friends is that Job spoke 'constructively' about God, not about him as much as to him, not in terms of conventional understandings of justice, but in terms of a 'justice' that entailed power and freedom. Nam is on top of vast scholarly research. Thankfully his work deals with 'theology' - here narrowly defined, but rich. This book is a contribution to the discipline of biblical studies as well as to the life of Yahweh followers. (Elmer A. Martens, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary, Fresno, California)
