About "The Theology of the Book of Isaiah"
Yahweh sits enthroned, high and lifted upA shoot grows from the stump of JesseA Servant pours himself out to deathKings and nations stream to ZionThe book of Isaiah's imagery sparkles as it inspires. It draws us in to meditate and extend our vision along its vectors. But what should we make of this sprawling and puzzling book--so layered and complex in its composition--as a whole?John Goldingay helps us make sense of this "book called Isaiah" as a tapestry of patterned collages. Then, stepping back, he unfurls its unifying themes--from Zion to David to the Holy One of Israel. Like a program guide to Handel's Messiah, Goldingay helps us see, hear and understand the grandeur of this prophetic masterpiece among the Prophets.
