This is the best introduction commentary to Isaiah I have ever read. It provides an easy to read format combined with a non-technical language that informs the reader and makes the reader learn something he/she may have over-looked before. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a great commentary in one volume to Isaiah.

Alec Motyer brings beautifully expanded knowledge to our women's study of the book of Isaiah. We are gaining a greater grasp of the greatness of our God! Lee Mowers

A truly well written, well thought out, commentary on Isaiah. I find the book to be worth having for reference purposes but it's *not* user-friendly for those who are in a time-sensitive study. Motyer's style of communication is conversational but he does have a tendency to talk above the average reader. He's writes as though the reader is already familiar with everything he's saying as if speaking to long-time Biblical scholars such as Professors or Phds. I suggest you have a dictionary and a good Bible concordance with you as you read Motyer's "The Prophecy of Isaiah..." I read his book as a main test requirement for a college course and I fell severely behind in the reading requirements because the language Motyer uses is hard to understand for the average student.

Outstanding commentary. Clearly written, easy to read, and appears to have years of thought and work behind his exposition and comments.
