Nbbc, Isaiah 1-39: A Commentary in the Wesleyan Tradition (New Beacon Bible Commentary) (Paperback)
Prominent in both Judaism and Christianity, Isaiah is a book about redemption. Consisting of two parts, the first of which being the subject of this commentary, Isaiah's overall message tells of God's redemptive plan for all history, not just that of Israel. It is a book that strikes heavily on the thematic notes of God's holiness, his saving acts, his sovereignty, and his lordship over all nations.Exploring this formidable prophetic book in its canonical entirety is just one of several outstanding features of this commentary. As with other NBBCs this volume probes the issues of authorship, historical background, theology, and application. The author, Barry L. Ross, has continued the high standard of scholarship present in all New Beacon Bible Commentaries.Engaging, perceptive, and academically thorough, the New Beacon Bible Commentary will expand your understanding and deepen your appreciation of the meaning and message of each book of the Bible.Written from the Wesleyan theological perspective, this indispensable commentary provides pastors, professional scholars, teachers, and Bible students with a critical, relevant, and inspiring interpretation of the Word of God in the 21st century.
