IVP Academic Isaiah 40-66: Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture [ACCS]

The benefits of this commentary are numerous. This commentary of Isaiah 40-66 informs post-critical Christian reading and exposition of Isaiah, contains indexes, bibliographies and keys to original language sources, renders ancient Greek, Latin, Coptic and Syriac writings in lucid English translation, and is an excellent resource for preaching and teaching.

About the Ancient Christian Commentary Series reviewers have said:

"Contemporary Christians would do well to draw the hermeneutical circle broadly enough to include not only cross-cultural voices from the modern world but also the ancient voices found in this series. This is an excellent sermon preparation resource for pastors,"---Christian Century

This is a whole commentary set and from what I can tell after reading this volume, it is wonderful! This volume is chocked full of background information on each chapter and it gives commentary on verse by verse from Isaiah. It also gives us insights into these passages by the Church Fathers such as Origen, Augustine, Anthanasius, Ambrose, and a host of others. This commentary is very thorough. Yet, while the size of the volume may appear overwhelming, it is also written in an understandable manner that is usable to the person in the pew as well as the pastor.High highly recommend this for your library.

I subscribe to the InterVarsity Ancient Christian Commentary series. During our 2007-2008 Community Bible Studies series we are delving into the book of Isaiah. Our leader is using this 2 Vol set for her research and presentation to the attendees. Great material she says.
