Isaiah is a central text for both Jewish and Christian traditions. As prophecy, it offers words of hope and warning, forgiveness and condemnation. As a work of history, it reveals the trials of the Israelite nation. As literature, it has shaped the liturgical life of the church and the imaginations of artists for more than two thousand years. The frequent use of Isaiah in the New Testament, and the fulfillment of Isaianic prophecy through New Testament events makes the book of Isaiah profoundly important for Christians today.
Studies on Isaiah examines the composition and meaning of Isaiah in both its original context and in contemporary settings. Contributors examine the structure and rhetoric of Isaiah, the imagery, themes, and metaphor. They also discuss questions of authorship, historicity, and canonicity of Isaiah, as well as the wildly different interpretations of Isaiah throughout history.
