Review 1 for Isaiah: Interpreted by Early Christian and Medieval Commentators
Date:September 15, 2007
The Church's Bible series thus far seems to be an appreciably thorough compilation of early to medieval commentary on Holy Scripture, the installment for the Book of Isaiah being no exception. Spanning 1200 years or so of insight and application, most reader will doubtless appreciate the selections, layout and readability of this publication. It should prove both instructional as well as spiritually enriching to serious students of Holy Writ. I heartily recommend it to one and all!
