Shortlisted for Australian Christian Book of the Year 2011. Kirk Patston opens up the complex and majestic book of Isaiah in a commentary, perfectly suited for everyday reading and reference. Drawing out what this book would have meant to Israel in different periods of its history, Kirk highlights the themes of danger, trust, transformation and judgment which run throughout. In Isaiah, we enter a different age. The magnificent book serves as the opening scene for the world-shaking themes the prophets will deliver for hundreds of years.
