Unto Us a Child Is Born : Isaiah, Advent, and Our Jewish Neighbors
by Tyler D. Mayfield and Walter Brueggemann




Overview -

Whether through a hymn, Handel's Messiah, or the lectionary reading, the book of Isaiah provides a familiar voice for congregations during the season of Advent. So how do we create faithful, Christian interpretations of Isaiah for today while respecting the interpretations of our Jewish neighbors?

Integrating biblical scholarship with pastoral concern, Tyler Mayfield invites readers to view Isaiah through two lenses. He demonstrates using near vision to see how the Christian liturgical season of Advent shapes readings of Isaiah and using far vision to clarify our relationship to Jews and Judaism--showing along the way how near vision and far vision are both required to read Isaiah clearly and responsibly.
