    Commenting on the printing of Edward Fisher’s Marrow of Modern Divinity, the historian Donald Beaton said that “The book was published with the imprimatur of Joseph Caryl, known to students of Puritan theology by his voluminous commentary on the book of Job, a work the reading of which as has been remarked might well have exhausted the patience of the patriarch himself.”

    Donald Beaton, ‘The “Marrow of Modern Divinity” and the Marrow Controversy’, Records of the Scottish Church History Society, 1 (1926), p. 113.

    Another way I've heard it put is that reading Joseph Caryl on Job will certainly develop the patience which Job advocates.
