B 55 Reading Isaiah: A Beginner's Guide (2010)

Isaiah is a book of central importance in the Christian Scriptures, and yet it is also a long, complex book, at times bordering on the obscure. How should we read it and make sense of it?

This masterly exploration looks at the range of issues and, through study of particular texts, opens up issues of history, theology, and Isaiah's place in the Bible. Unafraid to face some of the tough questions, it finishes by reflecting on how it might be preached today.
