There are many academic commentaries, but very few hold to an inerrant view of Scripture as Mentor commentaries do. This series of expositions of Scripture successful refute wilder departures from orthodoxy whilst appreciating and learning from latest theological research. This expanding series includes commentaries on the Old and New Testament.
Isaiah is a book of literary, historical, theological and ecclesial riches. Paul R. House contends that Isaiah wrote the whole book during his long ministry. Predicts the coming of the Messiah. Strives to treat Isaiah as a prophetic book, as a work that highlights major themes such as creation, sin in its many manifestations (e.g. covenant breaking), proper ethical behavior, approaching judgment often described as ‘the day of Yahweh’, and renewal effected by Yahweh’s redeeming work. Yahweh displays indomitable determination to redeem in Isaiah. The creator will redeem his people. He will give them a permanent home in a new heavens and earth, a perfect Zion, and a safe place. The redeemed will come from many nations, and they will serve him in their lifetimes and beyond. Sin and death cannot stop this plan. All Yahweh’s covenants will be kept, the dead shall rise, justice will prevail, and the Davidic messiah will play the key role in this inexorable victory.

This work, infused with reverence for the divine inspiration of the prophets message, seeks to make that message clear to contemporary readers. While it avoids discussion of complex critical questions in order to focus on matters of setting, structure, content, and meaning, it brings depth and a wide range of contemporary thinking to its treatment of these topics.
Paul House presents an important new reading of the prophecies of Isaiah based on the question: What if the entire book came from Isaiah and was spoken during the Assyrian era? His explanations are insightful, historical, well substantiated, interactive with other commentaries, and frequently mention NT quotations. He accepts the messianic interpretation of many key passages and explores how Isaiahs theological reflections challenged his contemporary audience as well as contributed to biblical theology.
Dr. Houses penetrating textual analysis reveals that the lengthy book is gospel shaped by seven consecutive divisions that all move from the peoples sins to soaring Zion texts, and that, in fact, the very word gospel had its origin in Isaiah! This, along with Houses convincing conclusion that Isaiah, alone, is the sole author of all sixtysix chapters provides the commentary with a literary and theological unity that invites reallife reflection and application midst todays uncertainties.
It is difficult in the few words normally associated with an endorsement to convey the treasure trove of historical, theological and contextual insights that Dr. Paul House provides in this absorbing commentary on Isaiah. Not only does he effectively affirm Isaiahs authorship and its historical setting but its presentation, in terms of the flow of Hebrew poetry, thematic highlights and Christological preeminence is beyond being merely helpful and informative. It will draw the reader inspirationally into both the passion and the depth of Isaiahs message.
