Isaiah 1-39 by John N. Oswalt

Book Description

The first of John N. Oswalt's two-part study of the book of Isaiah for the NICOT series, this commentary on chapters 1u39 combines theological acumen, literary sensitivity, philological expertise, and historical knowledge to present a faithful and accurate reading of one of the Old Testament's most important books. In the introduction to this work, Oswalt considers Isaiah's background, unity of composition, date and authorship, canonicity, Hebrew text, theology, and problems of interpretation, and he offers a select bibliography for further research. Oswalt also provides substantial discussions of several issues crucial to the book of Isaiah. He notes, for example, that scholars often divide Isaiah into three divisions, with chapters 1 39 addressing Isaiah's contemporaries in the eighth centuryB.C., chapters 40 55 presupposing the exile of the sixth century, and chapters 56 66 presupposing the eventual return from exile. While taking this scholarship into account Oswalt defends the unity of the prophetic book and argues convincingly that the whole book can be attributed to the Isaiah of the eighth century. The commentary proper, based on Oswalt's own translation of the Hebrew text, provides pastors, scholars, and students with a lucid interpretation of the book of Isaiah in its ancient context as well as an exposition of its message for today."

Bible Among the Myths by John N. Oswalt Bible Among the Myths, Paperback (July 2009)

Intends to assert that the Bible's historical claims cannot be disassociated from its theological claims. This book supplies a necessary corrective to rejecting the Old Testament's testimony about a transcendent God who breaks into time and space and reveals himself in and through human activity.

Isaiah by John N. Oswalt Isaiah, Hardback (July 2003)

As in the other volumes of the New International Version Application Commentary, this book, a Silver Medallion award winner, helps the reader not only to understand accurately what the text of Isaiah says, but also what it means and how that meaning can apply to living in the twenty-first century.
