Ever since the first century, Christians have regarded Isaiah as a high point in the Old Testament prophetic literature. Its themes of messiah and suffering servant, deliverance from exile and new creation--to name a few--have been viewed as reaching particular fulfillment in the gospel. Then too, the impact of Isaiah on the church's language of worship and hymnology, andEver since the first century, Christians have regarded Isaiah as a high point in the Old Testament prophetic literature. Its themes of messiah and suffering servant, deliverance from exile and new creation--to name a few--have been viewed as reaching particular fulfillment in the gospel. Then too, the impact of Isaiah on the church's language of worship and hymnology, and on the Western tradition of art and literature, is beyond measure. The book of Isaiah has also received more than its fair share of scholarly examination, with various theories of its origin and composition proposed. Originating in a 2008 Tyndale Fellowship conference on Isaiah, Interpreting Isaiah presents some of the most significant evangelical scholarship on Isaiah today. Essays on recent scholarship and the theology of Isaiah offer valuable overviews that bring readers abreast of current understanding. And more sharply focused studies in particular Isaianic themes and texts explore issues and exercise methodologies that will interest and reward diligent teachers and preachers of the Old Testament.


Interpreting Isaiah: Issues and Approaches Reviews

  • Guillaume Bourin

    This volume consists in a collection of essays on various themes and theological aspects of the book of Isaiah. The last three chapters interacts with exegetical issues. Somes contributions are more valuable than others [i.e, I really enjoyed Torsten Uhlig's treatment of the motif of hardening in Is 6:9-10). Overall, this collective work is a good introduction to current issues and approaches in the field.

  • Tony

    As a whole a helpful overview. Individual essays are hit and miss on quality (and as such probably give a good sampling of the field!).
