Product Description

Isaiah 1-12 is teh first of three volumes of Hans Wildberger's commentary on Isaiah 1-39 in the Continental commentary Series. English readers now have access to the most exhaustive and, in many respects, the most helpful analysis of a major prophetic voice from Israel in the 8th Century B.C.E. The pattern of other Old Testament volumes in the Continental Commentary Series is followed here also. Each successive unit of the text is treated under six headings:
  • Literature
  • Form: literaryGattung and metrical pattern
  • Setting: date, place, Sitz em Laben, authenticity
  • Commentary: verse-by-verse discussion of what the text meant to its original hearers/readers
  • Purpose and Thrust: the theological intention of the text.

Publisher's Description

"This excellent commentary is certainly the most exhaustive of works available on the chapters with which it deals. I recommend it unreservedly to all serious students of the Old Testament." -- John Bright "Wildberger's commentary has turned out to be his Lebenswerk, and it is itself a noble tribute to a scholar who is theologically sensitive, aware of differing opinions, and fair in dealing with them. It is the best existing commentary on the book of Isaiah." -- Roland E. Murphy
