Isaiah For Everyone (Old Testament For Everyone)

Westminster John Knox Press is pleased to present the seventeen-volume Old Testament for Everyone series. Internationally respected Old Testament scholar John Goldingay addresses Scripture from Genesis to Malachi in such a way that even the most challenging passages are explained simply and concisely. The series is perfect for daily devotions, group study, or personal visits with the Bible.In this volume on Isaiah, Goldingay explores the first of the great prophetic books. Isaiah is a compilation of the prophetic messages of several prophets. Their messages to the people of Judah and Jerusalem included a call for injustice to be recognized, a message of liberation and hope from the oppressors of the people, and a message of the coming day of judgment. These separate messages are held together by the promise of a new age of redemption and peace that lies beyond the crisis of judgment.

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.
