Publisher's Description

Recipient of a Christianity Today 1994 Critics Choice Award! Among Old Testament prophetic books no other equals Isaiah's brilliance of style and metaphor, its arresting vision of the Holy One of Israel and its kaleidoscopic vision of God's future restoration of Israel and the world. Now, after over three decades of studying and teaching Isaiah, Alec Motyer presents a wealth of commentary and perspective on this book. His emphasis is on the grammatical, historical, structural, literary and theological dimensions of the text. Though based on the Hebrew text, his exposition easily accomodates readers without a working knowledge of biblical Hebrew. And he writes with an interest in Isaiah's meaning for Christians today. Along the historical timeline on which the Isaianic prophecies are strung, Motyer finds three central and recurring themes: the messianic hope, the motif of the city and the theology of the Holy One of Israel. Moreover, he argues, the Isaianic literature is organized around three messianic portraits: the King (Isaiah 1-37), the Servant (Isaiah 38-55) and the Anointed Conqueror (Isaiah 56-66). Preachers, teachers and serious Bible students of all types will find this commentary a wise, winsome and welcome guide to the prophecy of Isaiah. It may easily be the best one-volume evangelical commentary on Isaiah available today.

    This is the best introduction commentary to Isaiah I have ever read. It provides an easy to read format combined with a non-technical language that informs the reader and makes the reader learn something he/she may have over-looked before. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a great commentary in one volume to Isaiah.

    A truly well written, well thought out, commentary on Isaiah. I find the book to be worth having for reference purposes but it's *not* user-friendly for those who are in a time-sensitive study. Motyer's style of communication is conversational but he does have a tendency to talk above the average reader. He's writes as though the reader is already familiar with everything he's saying as if speaking to long-time Biblical scholars such as Professors or Phds. I suggest you have a dictionary and a good Bible concordance with you as you read Motyer's "The Prophecy of Isaiah..." I read his book as a main test requirement for a college course and I fell severely behind in the reading requirements because the language Motyer uses is hard to understand for the average student.
