Content, interpretation, reception
Discovering Isaiah is the perfect introduction to the interpretation of Isaiah Through a critical assessment of key interpreters and interpretative debates, this is an Old Testament commentary that encourages in-depth study of the text and a genuine grappling with the theological and historical questions raised.
As part of the Discovering Biblical Texts series, Discovering Isaiah draws on a range of author-, text- and reader-centred methodological approaches as complementary rather than mutually exclusive ways of understanding the text. It also focuses on the reception history of the book of Isaiah, increasingly viewed by Biblical scholars as a vital aspect of interpretation rather than an optional extra.
Discovering Isaiah is an ideal Bible commentary for students and those looking to dig deeper into this key prophetic book of the Old Testament. You will gain a solid grasp of the structure and content of Isaiah, and a thorough understanding of a wide range of interpretative approaches and theological concerns that will enhance your own reading of the text.
