Yahweh is Exalted in Justice: Solidarity and Conflict in Isaiah

Yahweh is Exalted in Justice: Solidarity and Conflict in Isaiah

$37.99

Paperback
Presents the diverse perspectives of justice in the Book of Isaiah's treatment of Yahweh, the "God of justice."

- Publisher Focusing on Yahweh, the "God of Justice," Leclerc discusses how each of Isaiah's three parts emphasizes justice in its own unique way. In Isaiah 1-39 justice is fidelity and judgment. In Isaiah 40-55 it is treated as a manifestation of Yahweh's sovereignty and incomparability; Yahweh and his servant are the exclusive agents of justice. And in Isaiah 56-66 it is an obligation of the covenant that can be realized only through divine intervention. In addition to providing an overview of the importance of justice in the Hebrew Bible, Leclerc addresses liturgical issues through an analysis of those Isaiah passages that appear in the lectionary readings.
