In the introduction to this work, Oswalt considers Isaiah's background, unity of composition, date and authorship, canonicity, Hebrew text, theology, and problems of interpretation, and he offers a select bibliography for further research. Oswalt also provides substantial discussions of several issues crucial to the book of Isaiah. He notes, for example, that scholars often divide Isaiah into three divisions, with chapters 139 addressing Isaiah's contemporaries in the eighth century B.C., chapters 4055 presupposing the exile of the sixth century, and chapters 5666 presupposing the eventual return from exile. While taking this scholarship into account Oswalt defends the unity of the prophetic book and argues convincingly that the whole book can be attributed to the Isaiah of the eighth century.
The commentary proper, based on Oswalt's own translation of the Hebrew text, provides pastors, scholars, and students with a lucid interpretation of the book of Isaiah in its ancient context as well as an exposition of its message for today.
"An excellent conservative commentary on the book of Isaiah. . . Oswalt's work is a treasure. It provides solid help in understanding the text and message of this Old Testament book."
Review & Expositor
"This book is a solid piece of scholarship and may be recommended to pastors and teachers alike as an exemplary piece of conservative research and exposition."
Southwestern Journal of Theology
"This commentary will be one of the most widely used and appreciated [in the NICOT series], and perhaps even one of the flagship volumes."
