This is the final volume in Wilberger's comprehensive treatment of Isaiah 1–39. In addition to verse-by-verse commentary, the author provides a systematic overview of the entire Book of Isaiah. This introduction to Isaiah covers: the book and the text, the formation of Isaiah 1–39, the prophet Isaiah and his religious roots, the theology of post-Isaianic materials, language and forms of speech in Isaiah, and a listing of recent Isaiah scholarship.
A work of such importance that it must be carefully studied by each serious student of Isaiah. A rich and significant contribution.
Hans Wildberger was professor of Old Testament at the University of Zurich. He has authored numerous articles and books on Old Testament theology.
