Item description for Isaiah 40-66 (Interpretation, a Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching) by Paul Hanson...
Overview The Professor of Old Testament at Harvard Divinity School delves into Second Isaiah's beautiful poetic argument for a loving and caring God and how his creatures fit into the unfolding of history and the Messianic last days.
The latter half of the sixth century BCE found the Jewish community fragmented and under great strife after having been conquered by the Babylonian armies. As a response to a growing despair over life in servitude and exile, Isaiah 40-66 was written. Paul Hanson examines the writings of Second and Third Isaiah. What he discovers is a poetic argument for a loving and attentive God and the rightful place of God's creatures in the unfolding of history.
