Review:
This commentary from the Day One group is consistent with the group's first two aims: 'To be faithful to the Bible, God's inerrant, infallible Word; To be relevant to our modern generation'. Readers who can accept these policies may well find much that is helpful here. However, the author goes further and states that the New Testament gives the explanation for difficulties in Isaiah which might otherwise be inexplicable. Thus Isaiah's book is not treated on its own merits, but should be read in the light of the New Testament. Moreover, the widely accepted view that Isaiah is a composite work, containing the prophecies of two prophets and a group of disciples, and these spread over at least two centuries, is simply not acknowledged.
Those who can accept this will want to read on.
