NIV Application Commentary: Isaiah (John N. Oswalt) / January 01, 2003
It seems that every commentary series produces one truly great classic commentary. While the NIVAC series has produced many wonderful volumes, none compares to the over 500 pages of sheer excellence in commentary writing that John Oswalt has produced in Isaiah [NIVAC].
Oswalt, who has written multiple major commentaries on Isaiah, here skillfully sorts through the complex historical details and the timeless prophecies Isaiah made in light of those circumstances, and brilliantly applies them to our world and our lives as those living under reign of the messiah that the prophet could only see from a distance.
About the Series
This unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today. Therefore, the NIV Application Commentary Series helps with both halves of the interpretative task: exegesis and theological application.
Additionally, the unique reader friendly format and the direct pinning of the entire series to the NIV, make it exceptionally easy for non-specialist readers to follow and learn from.
Commentary authors will, at times, work with the original languages but complete explanations are always given in non-specialist language; and they serve the exclusive function of further explicating the text at hand. The same approach is taken with all complex issues and interpretive matters. The focus is on learning and applying and every tool used by the commentators serves this end.
