Reviews - What do customers think about Encountering the Book of Isaiah: A Historical and Theological Survey (Encountering Biblical Studies)?

Disappointed  Jan 27, 2010
I'm no scholar, I just wanted a primer on Isaiah to help me get an overall sense of the purpose, structure and historical setting of the book. Based on the other reviews, this sounded like the right book. While there are glimmers here and there of quality thought and writing and some historical background, charts and illustrations that are superb, there's a few infuriating groaners that ruined it for me ... in fact, when I got to pages 49 - 50, I almost stopped reading. The observations and writing were ... just ... pedantic. Overall, I couldn't recommend this to anyone else. I think that the author sometimes tries too hard to shoehorn an application of the Isaiah text to either (1) first century, or (2) today. I believe it would have been more compelling had the author kept us in that time period, making it come alive, and waited until the end to draw larger themes out of the book and apply to both periods. Overall, not what I was hoping for, but if you can wade through some of the silliness, there's some good basic information.
Excellent and accessible.  Jul 2, 2008
After twenty years of seminary and personal study, I taught Isaiah in an academic setting to bright high school seniors for twelve years, so I came to the book with some scepticism regarding its ability to both handle the details and to see the big picture. Beyer's book handled both with a facility that made it an enjoyable read [I went through it in two days]that blended scholarship and clarity. I never found an adequate textbook, other than the Bible itself, when I was teaching Isaiah, but if and when I teach it again I'll have no reservations with using Beyer's text.
Excellent tool for helping understand the message of Isaiah  Jan 22, 2008
This book was assigned to me as a textbook in my seminary class on Isaiah. It serves as a helpful guide for understanding the book of Isaiah. The book is filled with side bars which provide great background material, definitions and other helpful information. The book is not overly technical - any student of the Bible would benefit from this book.
