Item description for Isaiah: An Introduction and Commentary (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries) by J. A. Motyer...

The book of Isaiah is perhaps the most compelling of all Old Testament prophecy. No other prophet rivals Isaiah's brilliance of style, powerful imagery and clear vision of the messianic hope.Isaiah's prophetic ministry begins with his temple vision and calling: "I heard the voice of the Lord saying, 'Whom shall I send?'" Through a series of oracles Isaiah calls Israel and the nations to turn to the Lord, for judgment is coming. He announces that redemption is found in the Davidic Servant alone. Finally, in the "day of vengeance and the year of redemption" the Anointed Conqueror will punish rebellious peoples, comfort the contrite and reestablish the glory of Zion.J. Alec Motyer, author of the unparalleled one-volume commentary The Prophecy of Isaiah, now provides the long-awaited final volume in the Tyndale Old Testament Commentary Series. Unlike many Isaiah commentators who divide the book between chapters 1-39 and 40-66, Motyer instead identifies three messianic portraits: the King (Isaiah 1-37), the Servant (Isaiah 38-55), and the Anointed Conqueror (Isaiah 56-66). This volume provides Motyer's lucid exposition on these three portraits, examining Isaiah with insightful and probing passage-by-passage commentary.All who study the text of Isaiah will find here expert scholarship and solid footing for unraveling difficult issues of exegesis and interpretation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Isaiah: An Introduction and Commentary (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries)?

Not as good as his earlier 1993 commentary on Isaiah  Apr 24, 2006
In 1993 Motyer wrote a one volume commentary on Isaiah which challenged the prevailing wisdom of Isaianic scholarship that Isaiah was written by at least three different authors. That commentary is a brilliant and engaging work (see my this site review of it). This more recent Tyndale work is not as good and should be avoided. It is a poorly edited downsized copy of the larger one, and leaves out most of the good stuff. In addition, it lacks flow, giving the reader the impression it was refined one too many times on Motyer's word processor.
