Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Isaiah 1-39 (New American Commentary)?
An Excellent Help in Understanding Isaiah Mar 4, 2010
Dr. Smith is one of the finest Old Testament scholars in the United States and his expertise in Old Testament prophets shines through these two volumes. The great contribution he makes is in helping the student to understand not only the social context(s) of Isaiah but also how the prophet tried to communicate a message to his audience in such a way that it would transform them.
Isaiah 1-39, by Gary Smith Dec 1, 2009
This was an excellent book. I don't agree with Mr. Smith theologically, but he used recent archaeological information and the most recent literary discoveries of the region to help to understand what the Prophet was saying. It's a long book, but worth the effort. Some space could have been saved if Mr. Smith would not have preached a sermon at the end of each section. Apparently, he felt he was to find a moral or a modern relevance for every passage.
