The Daily Study Bible Series is the Old Testament companion to the Barclay's New Testament. This volume in the first of two on Isaiah by John Sawyer. This book begins with a short introductory article which discusses the origin and text of this book. The commentary itself is scholarly but readable, giving the reader an in-depth understanding of this book. A good work for pastors or informed lay people.
This prophetic Old Testament book begins by telling the reader that it is the "vision" of Isaiah. The use of the word "vision," John F. A. Sawyer explains, conveys to the reader that regardless of when the prophet lived, "his 'words' go beyond the immediate historical circumstances of his day." Sawyer argues that we as modern readers also are being addressed.
Carrying forward brilliantly the pattern established by Barclay's New Testament series, the Daily Study Bible has been extended to cover the entire Old Testament as well. Invaluable for individual devotional study, for group discussion, and for classroom use, the Daily Study Bible provides a useful, reliable, and eminently readable way to discover what the Scriptures were saying then and what God is saying today.
John F. A. Sawyer is an Old Testament scholar who is the author of numerous books, including The Fifth Gospel: Isaiah in the History of Christianity, Prophecy and the Biblical Prophets,and a two-volume commentary on Isaiah published by WJK.
