In Isaiah: God Saves Sinners, Raymond C. Ortlund, Jr., argues that Isaiah imparts a single vision of God throughout all sixty-six chapters. It is a unified, woven whole presenting God's revelation of himself to mankind, breaking through our pretense and clashing "with our intuitive sense of things." Ortlund makes a point of man's uninterest in God and his unfailing inclination to disbelief, and thus the need for God to "interrupt our familiar ways of thinking."
The emphasis of this addition to the Preaching the Word series is this: God saves sinners. He saves them willfully and powerfully and needs no help from us, presenting himself in all his unmistakable glory. The message of Isaiah, shown thoroughly and thoughtfully in this commentary, will reignite a passion for the glory of God in the hearts of believers and will present that glory clearly and potently to those who have yet to be brought to saving faith.
Preaching the Word commentaries are written by pastors for pastors, as well as for all who teach or study God's word. With pastor R. Kent Hughes as the series editor, experienced pastors and teachers model expository preaching and practical application. This series is noted for its steadfast commitment to biblical authority, clear exposition of Scripture, and readability. It is widely accessible for seasoned and new pastors, as well as men and women hungering to read the Bible in a fresh way.

Isaiah is widely considered the deepest, richest, and most theologically significant book in the Old Testament. It is, without question, a profound statement by God about his own sovereignty and majesty spoken through his chosen spokesman, the prophet Isaiah.
In this accessible commentary on the book of Isaiah, Raymond C. Ortlund Jr. argues that Isaiah imparts a single vision of God throughout all sixty-six chapters. It is a unified, woven whole that ultimately shows that God saves sinners. He saves them from their own self-invented salvations, so that they can walk in the light of his love.
Ultimately, the message of Isaiah offers us a God-centered confidence that enables us to face anything while challenging us to trust God in new ways.

The Preaching the Word commentary series is one of my favorites. The focus upon explaining a text with preaching it as the goal makes the series resonate with the priorities of the pulpit. No academic aloofness here, but down-to-earth, preacher-to-preacher meat for God's people.
President, Covenant Theological Seminary
I'm delighted to endorse the philosophy behind the series edited by my friend Kent Hughes. Here sounds out the voice not of the scholar in the study but of the scholar in the pulpit. The authors are all able teachers who regularly expound God's living Word to his people. May this rich material give us 'patterns of preaching' that will not only feed the flock, but, by God's grace, change the church.

TCisMESan Leon, TexasAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5great seriesNovember 15, 2017TCisMESan Leon, TexasAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have the older (2005) version of this book; but this commentary of Isaiah is so good that I am slowing purchasing the entire series. The format is loose rather than a verse-for-verse commentary; that being said it is a very well written reformed theology book. I have found that reading the Bible for the chapters, then reading the commentary works well. The author informs You of what GOD is bringing to light, and always keeps You examining Yourself and Your motives in the present time. I feel studying this book has made me search my heart and inspect my life to exam my flaws while realizing that God's grace is always there to guide and assist me at all times. I hope all the series is this good , as they are written by several different authors (just like the Bible is). It has been a blessing to me, is Christ-Centered writing and hopefully will be a blessing to You also. Of note: I own the Hardcover, and have not tried the down load edition (e-reader?).

I do not like the e-reader though. The pages are way too small and I just feel like it needs an upgrade. I am using a PC for reading, as I have a Nook that isn't compatible with e-books. The reader really needs to be better.
