Item description for Unbound By Time: Isaiah Still Speaks by William Holladay...

In this timely and highly readable volume, Old Testament scholar William Holladay introduces the reader to the several ways in which Isaiah speaks, from ancient Jewish readings of the text, to Handel s lyrical use of it in his oratorio, Messiah, to the Christian community who has heard it foretelling the life and death of Jesus Christ. Holladay argues persuasively that the text of Isaiah, though rooted in historical time, place, circumstance, is unbound by time. Using those portions of the prophet s writings which are most often included in the various modern lectionaries of the churches, Holladay both provides detailed historical commentary and presents a method for allowing the text to still speak to believers in the twenty-first century."

Reviews - What do customers think about Unbound By Time: Isaiah Still Speaks?

A fascinating exploration of Isaiah..or is that the other Isaiah?  Aug 17, 2007
It seems that for those who follow along with the Sunday lectionary readings, Isaiah is a prophet who gets a lot of our attention. However, beyond those specific Sunday readings, most of us don't know much about the Book of Isaiah. In this wonderful volume, William Holladay boldly leads the reader in an exploration of a prophet and some writings that are often misunderstood or completely ignored. While making sense of the writings within their political and historical contexts, Holladay also points out the many layered intricacies and beauty of the language. Follow this trekker in learning more about the writers/prophets known as Isaiah. It's a very rewarding journey.
