Product Description

The book of Isaiah uses both prose and poetry to engage readers in a drama of great emotion and intensity. Although the circumstances under which this book took its present form remain in scholarly dispute, this commentary highlights its larger purpose - to provide the people of Judah and Jerusalem with hope for the future and the will to re-embrace their ancestral religious traditions.

Leslie Hoppe assumes the composite character of the books and approaches the work as a whole with its own literary and theological integrity. Unlike many other contemporary commentaries on the book of Isaiah, the divisions of the book used here focus on its literary shape rather than the history of its composition. With this approach, we recognize that the book of Isaiah is an expression of faith in the Holy One of Israel and in the future of Jerusalem, both of which have decisively shaped the faith of Jewish and Christian believers over the centuries.

Endorsements

In keeping with the most recent scholarship, Leslie Hoppe focuses here on the present canonical book of Isaiah, highlighting, through references forward and backward, recurring literary images and theological themes (especially God as the Holy One of Israel, and the role of Jerusalem). In addition he looks at its past and the historical, political, economic, and religious contexts to which it spoke, as well as to its future and the role it would play in both the Christian context (e.g., its abundant use in the New Testament) and later Jewish life. While brief, this commentary combines historical exegesis, literary sensitivity, and an actualization of its religious meaning for us today.
---Michael D. Guinan, OFM

Following an informative, concise and well written introduction, Leslie Hoppe leads the reader through an insightful and serious study of the book of Isaiah, first of the major prophets. Weaving a way among the oracles of judgment and salvation, Hoppe demonstrates how key themes of "the Holy One of Israel" and "Daughter Jerusalem" establish a foundation for the reading of this book of sixty-six chapters. Readers of this commentary will find an enriching analysis of this masterpiece of prophetic literature.
---Abbot Gregory J. Polan, OSB, Conception Abbey
