Isaiah: An Introduction and Commentary
The book of Isaiah is perhaps the most compelling of all Old Testament prophecy. None of the other prophetic witnesses rival Isaiah's brilliance of style and metaphor, powerful imagery and clarity of vision of the messianic hope.J. Alec Motyer, author of the unparalleled one-volume commentary The Prophecy of Isaiah, now provides the long-awaited final volume in the Tyndale Old Testament Commentary Series. Unlike many Isaiah commentators who divide the book between chapters 1-39 and 40-66, Motyer instead identifies three messianic portraits: the King (Isaiah 1-37), the Servant (Isaiah 38-55), and the Anointed Conqueror (Isaiah 56-66). This volume provides Motyer's lucid exposition on these three protraits, examining Isaiah with insightful and probing passage-by-passage commentary.All who study the text of Isaiah will find here expert scholarship and solid footing for unraveling difficult issues of exegesis and interpretation.

However, I feel the author sometimes misses big picture issues, especially in relation to the rest of the canon, and does not always hit some important theological ideas (New Exodus, New Covenant, etc.). ...
