Prominent in both Judaism and Christianity, Isaiah is a book about redemption. Consisting of two parts, the first of which being the subject of this commentary, Isaiah’s overall message tells of God’s redemptive plan for all history, not just that of Israel. It is a book that strikes heavily on the thematic notes of God’s holiness, his saving acts, his sovereignty, and his lordship over all nations.
Exploring this formidable prophetic book in its canonical entirety is just one of several outstanding features of this commentary. As with other NBBCs this volume probes the issues of authorship, historical background, theology, and application. The author, Barry L. Ross, has continued the high standard of scholarship present in all New Beacon Bible Commentaries.
