This multifaceted volume artfully blends the functions of an introduction and a commentary. Without overwhelming the student with details, it discusses a wide range of issues that are important for the interpretation of Isaiah. The book consists of three parts. In the first part, Herbert Wolf discusses the more traditional introductory questions: the world of Isaiah, the theories of multiple authorship, the structure of Isaiah, and Isaiah's poetry. The second part is a detailed paragraph-by-paragraph analysis of the prophecy itself. The last part of the book discusses Isaiah's christological and eschatological emphases. Detailed footnotes and an extensive bibliography facilitate further study.
Herbert Wolf was associate professor of theological studies at Wheaton College, Illinois. His area of expertise was Old Testament studies. Dr. Wolf held degrees from Wheaton College, Dallas Seminary, and Brandeis University. He was the author of Haggai and Malachi: Redemption and Renewal.
