Three Decades of Wisdom in a One-Volume Commentary on Isaiah

Among Old Testament prophetic books no other equals Isaiah's brilliance of style and metaphor, its arresting vision of the Holy One of Israel and its kaleidoscopic vision of God's future restoration of Israel and the world.

Along the historical timeline on which the Isaianic prophecies are strung, Motyer finds three central and recurring themes: the messianic hope, the motif of the city and the theology of the Holy One of Israel. Moreover, he argues, the Isaianic literature is organized around three messianic portraits: the King (Isaiah 1-37), the Servant (Isaiah 38-55) and the Anointed Conqueror (Isaiah 56-66).

In this wise, winsome, and welcome guide to the prophecy of Isaiah, preachers, teachers and serious Bible students of all types will find:

  • A wealth of commentary and perspective drawn from over three decades of study and teaching,
  • An emphasis on the grammatical, historical, structural, literary, and theological dimensions of the text, and
  • Commentary that easily accommodates readers without a working knowledge of biblical Hebrew and speaks to Isaiah's meaning for Christians today.

This may easily be the best one-volume evangelical commentary on Isaiah available today.
