Like the other prophets, Isaiah’s writings are full of judgment, hope, and encouragement. Israel is a nation that knows God’s truth but, rather than living it, is hardened to it. Though God’s interactions with His people seem beyond understanding, or even altogether missing, His identity as redeemer is emphasized above all else. Isaiah is sharply aware that God rules over all times and is able to redeem the blackest of evils for His good will. Despite Israel’s constant rebellion, God’s love for His people proves to be boundless.
In this special Olive Tree collection not only can you read the Isaiah NIVAC volume, but you can also listen to author John Oswalt's lectures on Isaiah 1-39 and Isaiah 40-66 supplementing and augmenting the text.
The NIV Application Commentary uses a highly accessible, three-tiered method of bringing readers to a fuller understanding of each Biblical book. Original Meaning will explore a book’s meaning in light of its historical and cultural context. Bridging Contexts, as its name implies, will help the reader link the text’s original meaning to its Contemporary Significance—the final tier that helps you apply the Bible to everyday life. The accompanying Isaiah 1-39 & 40-66 Audio Lectures are part of the Zondervan Biblical and Theological Lectures series, which is dedicated to bringing expert teaching from world's best biblical scholars and theologians directly to interested learners.
