Expert help for understanding the Bible

Each volume in the Understanding the Bible Commentary Series breaks down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent to contemporary readers. They present a careful section-by-section exposition of the biblical books with key terms and phrases highlighted and all Hebrew transliterated. Notes at the close of each chapter provide additional textual and technical comments for those who want to dig deeper. A bibliography as well as Scripture and subject indexes are also included. Pastors, students, and Bible teachers will find in this series a commitment to accessibility without sacrificing serious scholarship.

Often quoted in the New Testament and known for its beautiful descriptions of God and his Servant, Isaiah is a favorite among Old Testament books. With clarity and insight, Goldingay guides the reader through this magnificent book, drawing out its themes of God's holiness and majesty, the nature of God's people, and true biblical spirituality.

John Goldingay is David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary. He is ordained in the Episcopal Church, and his publications include an Old Testament Theology and the "Old Testament for Everyone" series of commentaries.
