Item description for Isaiah 40-66 (Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture) by Mark W. Elliott...
Overview Provides patristic commentary on the text of Isaiah 40-66. The ACCS is aimed at pastors, seminarians and laypeople interested in Scripture study from the perspective of the early church fathers.
Publishers Description No book of the Old Testament is more frequently quoted in the New than Isaiah, and no portion of Isaiah is more frequently quoted in the New than the typologically fertile soil of Isaiah 40-66. Still, as interpreted by the fathers, Isaiah presents a message that is far more soteriological than christological, leading readers to a deeper understanding of God's judgment and salvation. Isaiah 40-66 provides us with the closest thing the Old Testament has to offer regarding a systematic theology. The excerpts included in this volume offer us a rich array of differing styles, principles and theological emphases from Theodoret of Cyr to Eusebius and Procopius, to Cyril of Alexandria, Jerome and Augustine. Readers will be enriched by the wide-ranging selections, some of which are translated here into English for the first time.

Reviews - What do customers think about Isaiah 40-66 (Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture)?
Great Commentary Mar 10, 2008
This is a whole commentary set and from what I can tell after reading this volume, it is wonderful! This volume is chocked full of background information on each chapter and it gives commentary on verse by verse from Isaiah. It also gives us insights into these passages by the Church Fathers such as Origen, Augustine, Anthanasius, Ambrose, and a host of others. This commentary is very thorough. Yet, while the size of the volume may appear overwhelming, it is also written in an understandable manner that is useable to the person in the pew as well as the pastor.
