Reading the Old Testament: Reading Isaiah (RtOT)

For the Olive Tree Bible App

Title: Reading the Old Testament: Reading Isaiah (RtOT)
Publisher: Smyth & Helwys
Author: Hyun Chul Paul Kim


In this commentary, Hyun Chul Paul Kim brings together innovative interpretive approaches and the proposals of various scholars to interpret the book of Isaiah in light of the ancient literature/culture, intertextual allusions/correlations, and socio-historical contexts of the empires. While closely exegeting key issues of each chapter, the commentary also explores interpretive relevance and significance between ancient texts and the modern world. Engaging with theological messages of the book of Isaiah as a unified whole, the commentary will both illuminate and inspire readers to wrestle with its theological implications for today’s church and society.


"Hyun Chul Paul Kim presents a compelling commentary on the book of Isaiah, a book that would be considered politically incorrect in our contemporary world. He deftly combines the details of a diachronic, or historical, analysis of the various elements of the book with an overarching synchronic, or literary, perspective that unites the book as a whole. His work is fundamentally intertextual in that it explores the relationships between Isaiah and ancient and contemporary worlds. This accessible commentary will both prompt and enable students to engage this endlessly fascinating book. — Marvin A. Sweeney, Professor of Hebrew Bible, Claremont School of Theology, Claremont, California, Professor of Tanak, Academy for Jewish Religion California, Los Angeles, California
