Publisher's Description

The latter half of the sixth century BCE found the Jewish community fragmented and under great strife after having been conquered by the Babylonian armies. As a response to a growing despair over life in servitude and exile, Isaiah 40-66 was written. Paul Hanson examines the writings of Second and Third Isaiah. What he discovers is a poetic argument for a loving and attentive God and the rightful place of God's creatures in the unfolding of history.

    This review was written for Isaiah 40-66, Interpretation Commentary.
    Paul D. Hanson covers Isaiah 40 66 in the Interpretation Bible Commentary (IBC) series, picking up where Christopher Seitz left off. In the preface, the author gives his explanation for why the book of Isaiah was divided in this series while most other books of the Bible were not.

    He doesnt provide an Introduction to Isaiah, or even to Isaiah 40 66, as a whole. Instead, he divides this work into two parts with the first one being on Isaiah 40 55. He does, however, give a good overview in these two sections. He begins his overview in part one by covering the historical setting. He writes well and always incorporates the theological underpinnings. Next, he discusses the personal dimension of the prophetic message, and then goes into the worldview of what he calls Second Isaiah. He ends the overview by discussing the literary qualities found in this section.

    From there, he jumps into the commentary section, which is more of a passage by passage presentation rather than a verse by verse one. He highlights both Gods compassion and justice often. Theres much theology throughout.

    In part two, he tackles Isaiah 56 66, which he calls Third Isaiah. The overview and the following commentary are done in the same fashion as before. While I cannot agree with several historical or source theory statements, I do appreciate the theology he draws out throughout the book.

    This book is a great companion to its predecessor on Isaiah 1 39. Again, the author makes good use of the IBC format. I recommend this book for those looking for one of the better critical presentations on Isaiah out there today.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.

    This review was written for Isaiah 40-66, Interpretation Commentary.
    Dr. Smith does a good job of going over the text and explaining what various methods of interpretation are, and I do appreciate that, but it was rather laborious in applicational theology. His conclusions were generally very good but at times more scholarly than spiritual for me.
