Series: Word Biblical Commentary
The Word Biblical Commentary series provides an exceptional resource for the professional theologian and instructor, the seminary or university student, the working minister, and everyone concerned with building theological understanding from a solid base of biblical scholarship.
Dr. Watts has revisited this work he produced almost twenty years ago, with a view to updating it in light of current scholarship. He continues to hold to the unity of Isaiah, rather than ascribing it to two or three composers or schools.
John D. W. Watts (1921 2013) was President of the Baptist Theological Seminary, Ruschlikon, Switzerland, and served as Professor of Old Testament at that institution, at Fuller Theological Seminary, and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. His numerous publications include commentaries on Isaiah (2 volumes), Amos, and Obadiah. He was Old Testament editor of the Word Biblical Commentary (1977 - 2011).
Jim Fisk4 Stars Out Of 5September 19, 2008Jim FiskI'm teaching a class at a Christian University on the Major Prophets and have found this commentary excellent material to use in preparation for my classes.
Cordell Hines2 Stars Out Of 5July 22, 2008Cordell HinesI did not care for this commentary. For one thing it is confusing. There is the WBC format that is confusing but if you are use to this format and have used it before you can get past this. In the translation portion of the commentary he writes it as a play and gives almost every line a different character (I have no idea where he gets this). He does not believe in one Isaiah of Jerusalem in 700's BC, but feels it is a drama in six acts. I prefer either Young's or Oswalt's commentaries on Isaiah
