Item description for Isaiah: An Introduction and Commentary (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries) by J. Alec Motyer...
Overview J. Alec Motyer, a lifelong Isaiah scholar, provides a lucid and insightful exposition of the book of Isaiah. Identifying three messianic portraits: the King, the Servant and the Anointed Conqueror, Motyer challenges traditional divisions of this compelling Old Testament book of prophecy.
Publishers Description 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. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

Reviews - What do customers think about Isaiah: An Introduction and Commentary (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries)?
Isaiah finally explained! Jul 14, 2008
This is a very good, in-depth study of the book of Isaiah. While not for the undeducated, it is an excellent verse-by-verse explanation of the history, background, and explanations of Isaiah's words. Brings a deeper understanding and appreciation for the prophetic wisdom and Holy Spirit guidance shown in this remarkable, and timely, book of the Bible.
A Laywoman's Perspective Jul 4, 2007
I appreciate the approach to a large Old Testament book full of prophecies. I can understand the vocabulary and yet am challenged to grasp the wonderful meanings for the prophet, Isaiah's day, The Day of the LORD, and also our day presently. The Holy One of Israel is also our Suffering Servant and Redeemer.
