In his extremely thorough work on Isaiah, Robert Wilken brings to bear his considerable knowledge of early Christianity. Drawing on writings of the church fathers ? Eusebius of Caesarea, Ambrose, Jerome, Cyril of Alexandria, Theodoret of Cyrus, Bernard of Clairvaux, and nearly sixty others ? all of them masterfully translated, this work allows the complex words of Isaiah to come alive.^Wilken's selection of ancient commentators clearly illuminates how Isaiah was used by the New Testament writers and understood by the early church fathers. Each chapter begins with a modern English translation of the septuagint, prepared by Mois's Silva. Editorial comments provide a foundation for understanding the excerpted commentaries and other writings that follow for each chapter.^"Isaiah: Interpreted by Early Christian and Medieval Commentators" is ideal for devotional and spiritual reading and for a deeper understanding of the church's historical interpretation of this major prophet.
-Publisher

Among the company of prophets so densely packed in the Old Testament, the book of Isaiah stands out as perhaps the most complete, containing, as Augustine said, more prophecies of Christ and the church than any of the other prophets. In this extremely thorough text, Robert Wilken brings all of his considerable knowledge of early Christianity to bear on this most major of prophets. Drawing on the writings of the church fathers Eusebius of Caesarea, Jerome, Cyril of Alexandria, Theodoret of Cyrus, and nearly sixty others with masterful translations for all, this work allows the complex words of Isaiah to come alive. Wilken's selection of ancient commentators sheds a light on how often the New Testament writers quote Isaiah, and its slow but sure reception in the early church. Each chapter begins with a modern English translation of the Septuagint, prepared by MoisA(C)s Silva. Editorial comments provide a foundation for understanding the excerpted commentaries and other writings that follow for each chapter. Isaiah: Interpreted by Early Christian and Medieval Commentators is ideal for all those seeking a deeper understanding of the church's historical interpretation of this important prophet.
