Sweeney’s work on Isaiah 1-39 has become a standard work, offering a detailed analysis of each chapter, lucid background material, and exhaustive bibliographies.
Praise for the Print Edition
Sweeney’s book marks a major milestone in Isaiah studies. The close examinations of the forms of the prophecies of Isaiah 1-39 and the role that this primary collection has played in the structure and formation of the book of Isaiah as a whole are splendidly shown. . . . This volume must surely become an indispensable starting point for the serious student, and I warmly recommend it.
