Baltzer’s magnificent commentary places chapters 40-55 of Isaiah in the new context after the Exile. The experience of catastrophe, the need to grapple with new problems and the hope for a peaceful future are linked in Deutero-Isaiah’s composition. Along with masterful presentation of the book’s themes, Baltzer also develops a creative hypothesis about the work’s genre, identifying it as a “liturgical drama” in six acts, which makes it possible to understand the text’s function in worship and its significance as a literary text of supreme artistry.
