Product Description

Scholarship on Isaiah tends to be introductory or overly specialized, making the distance between the two seemingly overwhelming. This book Interpreting Isaiah is a bridge across that chasm. This book accomplishes two goals. First, it orients the reader to the major thematic, theological, historical, and textual issues in Isaiah. These include, Monotheism in Isaiah, The Texts of Isaiah at Qumran, Faith in Isaiah, and Isaiah and the New Testament. Second, the book provides 3 case studies on particular texts from Isaiah currently in debate. These texts include, 9.1-7; 42.1-9; and 61.1-3. These include works from leading scholars such as John Goldingay, Paul Wegner, Rikk Watts, and Phillip Johnston.

Publisher's Description

Ever since the first century, Christians have regarded Isaiah as a high point in the Old Testament prophetic literature. Its themes of messiah and suffering servant, deliverance from exile and new creation--to name a few--have been viewed as reaching particular fulfillment in the gospel. Then too, the impact of Isaiah on the church's language of worship and hymnology, and on the Western tradition of art and literature, is beyond measure. The book of Isaiah has also received more than its fair share of scholarly examination, with various theories of its origin and composition proposed. Originating in a 2008 Tyndale Fellowship conference on Isaiah, Interpreting Isaiah presents some of the most significant evangelical scholarship on Isaiah today. Essays on recent scholarship and the theology of Isaiah offer valuable overviews that bring readers abreast of current understanding. And more sharply focused studies in particular Isaianic themes and texts explore issues and exercise methodologies that will interest and reward diligent teachers and preachers of the Old Testament.
