Product Description

In addition to being accessible to everyone, Alec Motyer's Tyndale Commentary on Isaiah, is also quite simply, one of the best resources available. In the introduction, Motyer details, through vignette style paragraphs, a basic topical and thematic description of each section on the book and then proceeds to discuss Isaiah's thought in both its historical and theological context. Furthermore, as every commentator on Isaiah does, Motyer examines the books literary structure and its authorship and generally follows conservative scholar O.T. Allis in his conclusions. Finally, the commentary contains a standard verse-by-verse commentary and is accompanied by short vignette's covering Isaiah 7.14 (virgin), 38.21-22 (the "intrusive" text), and 44.28 (Cyrus' prediction).

Publisher's Description

The book of Isaiah is perhaps the most compelling of all Old Testament prophecy. No other prophet rivals Isaiah's brilliance of style, powerful imagery and clear vision of the messianic hope. Isaiah's prophetic ministry begins with his temple vision and calling: "I heard the voice of the Lord saying, 'Whom shall I send?'" Through a series of oracles Isaiah calls Israel and the nations to turn to the Lord, for judgment is coming. He announces that redemption is found in the Davidic Servant alone. Finally, in the "day of vengeance and the year of redemption" the Anointed Conqueror will punish rebellious peoples, comfort the contrite and reestablish the glory of Zion. J. Alec Motyer, author of the unparalleled one-volume commentary The Prophecy of Isaiah, now provides the long-awaited final volume in the Tyndale Old Testament Commentary Series. Unlike many Isaiah commentators who divide the book between chapters 1-39 and 40-66, Motyer instead identifies three messianic portraits: the King (Isaiah 1-37), the Servant (Isaiah 38-55), and the Anointed Conqueror (Isaiah 56-66). This volume provides Motyer's lucid exposition on these three portraits, examining Isaiah with insightful and probing passage-by-passage commentary. All who study the text of Isaiah will find here expert scholarship and solid footing for unraveling difficult issues of exegesis and interpretation. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

    Motyer is a respected Evangelical scholar, author and editor. He writes well. He has completed two separate commentaries on Isaiah. This one is reportedly less detailed than the other. Although it is somewhat brief, it is so insightful, that everyone studying Isaiah should consult it. It is a reliable and accessible guide. It is one of the top two commentaries I've seen on this OT book (Oswalt's NICOT is the other). I highly recommend it.
