Though wielding an influence over philosophy that endures to this day, Thomas Aquinas did not consider himself a philosopher, but a Biblical scholar, whose expositions go right to the meaning of the texts. In his commentary on the Book of Job, he draws on Jewish philosophers to explain the meaning of this mystifying but seminal book of the Old Testament about divine providence. In a new translation and a Latin-English format, Aquinas's "lyrical" exposition of this rarely commented work will speak to anyone who desires a deeper meditation on this difficult but important work of the Bible.


An intellectual giant of the 13th century, Thomas Aquinas is best known for the clarity of thought in his philosophical and theological writings. His primary occupation at the University of Paris was as a theologian and a commentator on Sacred Scripture, and his philosophical work was always at the service of his Scriptural meditations. The writings of Thomas Aquinas remain widely influential to this day. “In his thinking, the demands of reason and the power of faith found the most elevated synthesis ever attained by human thought.” (John Paul II, Fides et Ratio)
