In his second volume covering chapters 40-66, acclaimed scholar John Oswalt of Asbury Theological Seminary concludes his in-depth study on the Book of Isaiah. Beginning with issues of authorship and composition, Oswalt presents a solid exposition of the biblical texts, based on intensive linguistic and historical research. Includes 720 pages, in hardcover from Eerdmans.
This long-anticipated work completes John Oswalt's two-volume commentary on the book of Isaiah. After opening with a valuable discussion on the state of Isaiah studies today, Oswalt provides an insightful verse-by-verse explanation of Isaiah 40-66, giving special attention to the message of the prophet not only for his own time but also for modern readers.
"The evangelical community should welcome the appearance of this fine commentary. . . A thoroughly evangelical work characterized by insightful exegetical and theological observations. It is clearly the best commentary available on Isaiah, one that should be in the library of every serious student of Isaiah's prophecy."
Princeton Seminary Bulletin
"This second installment in John Oswalt's two-volume treatment of the Book of Isaiah should quickly become the standard American evangelical exposition of Isaiah 40-66. As expected of a major commentary, it features extensive attention to textual issues and substantive conversation with leading critical commentators. . . Those who would like to see an exemplary representative of American evangelical biblical scholarship need look no further than this volume."
Stone Campbell Journal
"The finest commentary on Isaiah to date."
"An excellent introduction for interpreting and a stimulus for preaching Scripture. This must rank as one of the best commentaries available."
