This first installment of John N. Oswalt’s New International Commentary: The Book of Isaiah is excellent on all fronts: whether you approach from a theological, literary, or linguistic perspective, you can’t go wrong. Oswalt combines all these things with a great deal of historical context to provide a reliable commentary on Isaiah—an immensely vital part of the Old Testament.
Oswalt takes into account issues of context, theology, literary traits, canonicity, and background while remaining true to the original Hebrew. Central issues from authorship to message are addressed substantially. This original commentary (which operates from Oswalt’s own translation of the original Hebrew) is ideally suited for all levels of Bible readers.
New International Commentary on the Old Testament - Series Editor: Robert L. Hubbard Jr.
Maneuvering through Levitical laws, bloodshed in Joshua, or Daniel's apocalyptic visions, sincere readers often wonder what the Old Testament means and how it can be the Word of God. For several decades the New International Commentary on the Old Testament has helped countless people traverse this difficult literary terrain.
All the NICOT volumes combine superior scholarship, an evangelical view of Scripture as the Word of God, and concern for the life of faith today. Each volume features an extensive introduction treating the biblical book's authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology. The author's own translation of the original Hebrew and verse-by-verse commentary follow. The commentary itself carefully balances coverage of technical matters with exposition of the biblical text's theology and implications.
