For over one hundred years, the International Critical Commentary series has held a special place among works on the Bible. It has sought to bring together all the relevant aids to exegesis—linguistic and textual no less than archaeological, historical, literary and theological—with a level of comprehension and quality of scholarship unmatched by any other series.

No attempt has been made to secure a uniform theological or critical approach to the biblical text: contributors have been invited for their scholarly distinction, not for their adherence to any one school of thought.

The depth of analysis found in the International Critical Commentary (ICC) Series has yet to be surpassed in any commentary collection. One of the best features of this series is the extensive amount of background information given in each volume's introduction, where all of the analysis is provided before the actual commentary begins. Each volume packs more information into the introduction than you will often find in the body of most commentaries! Also consider that with the electronic versions of each volume, you will never need to leaf through the hundreds of pages in each volume searching for the passage you are studying.

“The dealing of his hands] Jg 9:16; Pr 12:14: for the idea that as a man deals he is dealt with, see 33:1 (of nat” (Page 66)

“Some of the names singly, and even more in combination, are as applied to men unparalleled in the OT, and on this account are regarded by Gressmann (p. 280ff.) as mythological and traditional: cp. also Rosenmüller’s Scholia.—Wonderful Counsellor] Like God Himself (28:29; 25:1), the Messiah will give counsel that will be exceptional, exceeding what has hitherto been known or heard.—Mighty God] cp. 10:21; ‘the great (and) the mighty God,’ Dt 10:17; Neh 9:32; Jer 32:18.” (Page 173)

“Ahaz declines the offer, asserting that he is unwilling to tempt Yahweh by making Him prove His power (cp. Ex 17:7). Isaiah is not deceived by this show of piety, but interprets the king’s refusal of a sign as an indication of his unwillingness to accept the guidance of Yahweh, and his determination to pursue his own policy.” (Page 121)

“The doom of the people is inevitably fixed: there is to be no further healing of their sick state” (Page 109)

“rests on a misconception of what the term אות‎, sign, necessarily implies” (Page 124)

Of great value is the commentary of G. Buchanan Gray on the first twenty-seven chapters of Isaiah. From the point of view of philology the work is excellent, and the discussion of the versions is very valuable. The book will long remain a standard work of reference.
