Item description for The Book of Isaiah (Set of 3 Volumes) by Edward J. Young...
Overview Dealing primarily with the entire text's meaning, Young sets his interpretation firmly in the context of Isaiah's archaeological, cultural, and intellectual background. Though he writes for scholars, laypeople needn't be afraid to consult Young: he works from his own English translation, little Hebrew appears in the commentary itself, and technical language is included only in the notes and appendixes. Each of the volumes includes a bibliography and index. 1717 pages total, three softcovers from Eerdmans.

Edward J. Young on Isaiah Nov 29, 2001
The hardcover 3 volume set seems to be out of print! Hopefully it will be reprinted in a nice hardcover edition. Until then --thankfully-- it is STILL available in this 3 volume softcover edition.
As earlier mentioned Young is a member of a vanishing breed of Biblical commentators, he is conservative. His exposition rests upon a firm conviction that the text is holy and is God-breathed. Isaiah is the sole human author, and according to Young it is not a compilation of the efforts of various editors. He avoids injecting many of the popular and wild theories popular today, instead he sticks to the text and the facts as presented in the Biblical context, supplemented with some archaeological data. Hence the reader stands upon revealed facts, not contrived theories. Young moves along verse by verse, adding wonderful illumination and clarity when needed.
One proof that we have a very stable copy of Isaiah is the Qumran scroll from the 2nd century BC, with a text 99.5 percent identical to today's Hebrew edition.
As a commentary, it is one of the best. It is HIGHLY recommended for every believer. Most of the Hebrew words are transliterated, but not all. The text is very readable, and useful for beginners or experts in Biblical studies.
At the end of each volume is an index of persons, authors cited, and passages cited. The books are beautifully printed and well laid out. Isaiah is a worthy book to study, and this is the best commentary available for any believer. courtesy of Mr. Gary S. Dykes
Outstanding Conservative Work on OT Evangelist Apr 18, 2001
Since Isaiah is so critical due to its vast array of Messianic passages and especially the Suffering Servant of ch. 53, it is vital to have and consult this reliable resource.
In three volumes, Young provides vast background and contextual info to gaining an understanding of what the hearer heard back then, before moving to its NT fulfillment and application to the NT church.
Young uses the historical-grammatical method and relies on typology.
Rate this right up there with Keil-Delitzsch on this magnificent Evangelist of the OT.
One of the Better Commentary For the Book of Isaiah Nov 10, 2000
This commentary is a three volume set written by conservative scholar Edward J. Young. The series details events, people, places, and the language in which Isaiah was written, in a style that makes this commentary easy to read and understand. Just like any commentary, Young takes Isaiah verse by verse and phrase by phrase and comments upon the text. Moreover, Young is a conservative scholar and is therefore not convinced and trapped into the ever popular liberal view of the Deutero-Isaiah hypothesis; a source division that was spawned by Johann C. Doederlin in 1789. Young sees Isaiah as being written by a single author and thus his commentary is built around this idea. Young is very in depth in his commenting and understanding of the text of Isaiah. For that reason there are certain details that he covers which aid in the reader's understanding of what Isaiah is communicating to his audience; details which might otherwise be overlooked to the untrained eye. Therefore, if you are wanting a solid and very helpful commentary on the book of Isaiah, then I highly recommend this one.
