Product Description

In this first volume, John N. Oswalt presents a detailed, scholarly, evangelical commentary on chapters 1-39 of Isaiah. Oswalt provides an extensive introduction to the book along with an extensive bibliography using his own translation and a verse-by-verse commentary to examine the intricate details of this important prophet and his message. While proper training in Hebrew is necessary to get the most out of this commentary, a majority of the volume remains accessible to dedicated and studious laypeople. John N. Oswalt is professor of Old Testament and Semitic languages at Asbury Theological Seminary.

Publisher's Description

 
The first of John N. Oswalt's two-part study of the book of Isaiah for the NICOT series, this commentary on chapters 1û39 combines theological acumen, literary sensitivity, philological expertise, and historical knowledge to present a faithful and accurate reading of one of the Old Testament's most important books.

In the introduction to this work, Oswalt considers Isaiah's background, unity of composition, date and authorship, canonicity, Hebrew text, theology, and problems of interpretation, and he offers a select bibliography for further research. Oswalt also provides substantial discussions of several issues crucial to the book of Isaiah. He notes, for example, that scholars often divide Isaiah into three divisions, with chapters 1–39 addressing Isaiah's contemporaries in the eighth century B.C., chapters 40–55 presupposing the exile of the sixth century, and chapters 56–66 presupposing the eventual return from exile. While taking this scholarship into account Oswalt defends the unity of the prophetic book and argues convincingly that the whole book can be attributed to the Isaiah of the eighth century.

The commentary proper, based on Oswalt's own translation of the Hebrew text, provides pastors, scholars, and students with a lucid interpretation of the book of Isaiah in its ancient context as well as an exposition of its message for today.

Editorial Reviews

Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
"An excellent conservative commentary on the book of Isaiah. . . Oswalt's work is a treasure. It provides solid help in understanding the text and message of this Old Testament book."

Review & Expositor
"This book is a solid piece of scholarship and may be recommended to pastors and teachers alike as an exemplary piece of conservative research and exposition."

Southwestern Journal of Theology
"This commentary will be one of the most widely used and appreciated [in the NICOT series], and perhaps even one of the flagship volumes."

    By far Oswalt's work on Isaiah is superior

    John Oswalt's work on Isaiah in the NICOT series is the best available. His exegesis is clear and dependable; his Biblical theology is obvious throughout the work. He unashamedly holds to the reality of a single author for Isaiah and diligently presents the text in its appropriate historical context with superb theological insight into the writings. In my opinion there is only one other commentary on Isaiah that is a good companion and that is the work of J.A. Motyer. Oswalt's work on Isaiah in the NIVAC series is not near to the quality of work in these volumes. I highly recommend them for any serius study/preaching in Isaiah.

    I have read well over a hundred commentaries and in my layman opinion, John Oswalt's two volume work on the book of Isaiah is the best I've read. As I read commentaries, I normally highlight in yellow passages that I find particularly interesting and mark with a star those which resonate most forcefully. If you looked at my copy of Oswalt's Isaiah, you would find it littered with stars and yellow highlights. His work has just the right balance of scholarly and technical content with inspirational content. I can guarantee that with Oswalt at your side, you will gain a new appreciation for the book of Isaiah.

    I really appreciate this style of commentary. It explains each verse very well and dissects words to establish the original meaning excellently. The book outline is an excellent tool too. It is a must have for any serious Bible Student or Teacher or Pastor.

    This may be the best commentary I've ever read. It is wonderfully readable, scholarly, and deeply profound. Oswalt treats the Scripture with profound respect, while dealing with the issues of critical scholarship. As a preacher, I find this commentary to be very useful.

    When I did a study on the book of Isaiah I gathered several highly recommended commentaries. It was not long before I relied upon Oswalt before any other text. Very scholarly but reasonably easy to read. He holds to the unity of the book (the entire book written by a single man, Isaiah, about 700 BC) but deals with the controversial portions, giving support to why he believes in a single author. The book is up-to-date, giving variances as found in the Dead Sea Scrolls while always holding to the integrity of the text. If I was forced to buy only one commentary on Isaiah it would be Oswalt's (although no library is complete without both Oswalt's and Edward Young's).
