Goldingay's book was a light for our bible study class when our pastor went out of town. I now have a life giving message to hold onto, Isaiah 52:12, "..Yahweh is going before you, and Israel's God is bringing up your rear." Goldingay writes,"There will be no need for panicked flight, as if they (the Judahites) may get recaptured. They will be going with Yahweh. He will go ahead and he will bring up the rear." That's a great image to hold on to when life gets a little overwhelming.
Solid Goldingay scholarship and interpretation - more than helpful.
We are using this book as a part of our group study of Isaiah. I believe that the format will fit our needs. The writing is accessible even for beginning Bible students.
