Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these volumes offer clear, reliable and relevant explanations of every book in the Old Testament.
Tyndale volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.
No other prophetic book rivals Isaiah's clear message, powerful imagery and confident hope in God's future deliverance. His vision of God's glory and holiness in chapter 6 permeates the whole book, and he never tires of correcting misplaced faith in power or false gods. While many scholars divide the book with the gap of about 150 years between chapters 39 and 40, Wegner highlights the unified message of the book with its three Introductions (Isa. 1:1; 2:1; 13:1) paired with its three refrains (Isa. 48:22; 57:21; 66:24), with both parts illuminating God's glorious plan for his people.
Paul D. Wegner (Ph.D., King's College, University of London) is professor of Old Testament at Phoenix Seminary, Scottsdale, Arizona. He is the author of The Journey from Texts to Translations: The Origin and Development of the Bible; Using Old Testament Hebrew in Preaching and A Student's Guide to Textual Criticism of the Bible..
