Isaiah wrestles with the realities of people who are not convicted by the truth but actually hardened by it and a God whose actions sometimes seem unintelligible, or, even worse, who appears to be absent. Yet Isaiah penetrates these experiences to see a greater reality. Isaiah portrays God's rule over history and his capacity to take the worst of human actions and use them for good. He declares the truth that even in the darkest hours, the Holy One of Israel is infinitely trustworthy.
Isaiah 1-39: Audio Lectures features Old Testament scholar John Oswalt teaching through the book of Isaiah in short, engaging, and challenging lessons. Based on Oswalt's Isaiah commentary in the NIV Application Commentary series, these lessons bring the meaning of Isaiah into the 21st century. As Oswalt works through the book passage-by-passage, he comments on the text itself and then explores issues in Israel's culture and in ours that help us understand the meaning of each passage.
- Utterly delightful!
Easy to follow yet full of Spirit-inspired insights into the wonderful book of Isaiah. Oswalt is a superb lecturer.
For those relatively new to Old Testament studies, the lectures are very down to earth, no knowledge of Hebrew required.
The more experienced student will almost certainly find new ways of interpreting and/or expressing challenging passages.
If you are thinking about preaching or teaching through Isaiah you definitely want this and the second volume in the lecture series.
