Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Wow!April 19, 2018Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 0I love this book. Its one of the best Ive seen in the New International Version Application Commentary (NIVAC) series. Two words come to mind about the content of this commentary: mature and conservative. The tough questions are in no way dodged and quality, robust analysis can be found on every page. It probably helped that John Oswalt had already turned out an impressive commentary on Isaiah in the NICOT series. This second pass is something special.
The Introduction to Isaiah that he provides is rich, probing, and something different. Not that he fails to cover the normal introductory issues, but how he succeeds in tying these introductory issues to contemporary life is something to behold. The historical background he provides is a page turner. His conclusions in the section on authorship and date blow much of the absurd liberal scholarship that Isaiah has been subjected to right out of the water. The section on the central themes of Isaiah bring the book alive. He discusses the uniqueness of Jehovah, servanthood, the Lord of history, and realized righteousness. Theres some quality theology all across that section.
The commentary itself is excellent and follows the typical pattern of this series. Whether you agree with every conclusion he makes or not, you will find this commentary an outstanding asset to your studies. You need this book!
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.
Craft5 Stars Out Of 5Isaiah: NIV Application CommentayJanuary 15, 2016CraftQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love this commentary so far. I have purchased several commentaries on the book of Isaiah and have tried studying this book with them, yet remained frustrated and discouraged. I was almost ready to give up on studying the book of Isaiah until my husband's cousin, who leads a large Bible study, recommended this book to me. It has made the difference to encourage me to continue my studies. This commentary begins with an explanation of the history behind the book of Isaiah (which was very confusing to me before) that helped me understand the reason behind Isaiah's writings. I also love the discussion in the introduction on the main themes of Isaiah - it was quite helpful also. I feel that I am able to continue to study Isaiah now with this excellent commentary to assist me.

I looked at five other books on Isaiah. This one topped them all.
RandyArizonaAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Oswalt's Isaiah ebook exceeds expectations.January 31, 2011RandyArizonaAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Long intimidated by the prospect of tackling the book of Isaiah, I have found Oswalt's commentary on it to be of immense help in its comprehension. But the informational benefits of the commentary are surpassed by the sheer interest which Oswalt sustains throughout the book. On top of those things, the commentary provides much needed admonition for personal holiness in our own times.

I needed an indepth commentary to better understand it. I have used it for about a week now and it has helped tremendously. I bought one for a friend and gave it to her as an early Christmas gift. She loves it as well
