Isaiah 40-66 (Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching & Preaching)by Paul Hanson
Synopses & Reviews
The latter half of the sixth century BCE found the Jewish community fragmented and under great strife after having been conquered by the Babylonian armies. As a response to a growing despair over life in servitude and exile, Isaiah 40-66 was written. Paul Hanson examines the writings of Second and Third Isaiah. What he discovers is a poetic argument for a loving and attentive God and the rightful place of God's creatures in the unfolding of history.
Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching is a distinctive resource for those who interpret the Bible in the church. Planned and written specifically for teaching and preaching needs, this critically acclaimed biblical commentary is a major contribution to scholarship and ministry.
The writers were chosen for their proven abilities as biblical scholars and their experience as teachers and preachers. Each has an outstanding record of publication demonstrating a keen sense for biblical interpretation and expository writing.
