ACCS OT 11: Isaiah 40 - 66

No book of the Old Testament is more frequently quoted in the New than
Isaiah, and no portion of Isaiah is more frequently quoted in the New than the
typologically fertile soil of Isaiah 40-66. Still, as interpreted by the
fathers, Isaiah presents a message that is far more soteriological than
christological, leading readers to a deeper understanding of God's judgment and
salvation. Isaiah 40-66 provides us with the closest thing the Old Testament

Alexandria, Jerome and Augustine. Readers will be enriched by the wide-ranging
selections, some of which are translated here into English for the first
The Ancient Christian Commentary on
Scripture does what very few of today's students of the Bible could do for
themselves. The vast array of writings from the church fathers - including

volume, shaping, annotating and introducing it to today's readers. Each portion
of commentary has been chosen for its salient insight, its rhetorical power and
its faithful representation of the consensual exegesis of the early
The Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture is a
postcritical revival of the early commentary tradition known as the glossa
ordinaria, a text artfully elaborated with ancient and authoritative
reflections and insights. An uncommon companion for theological interpretation,
spiritual reading, and wholesome teaching and preaching.
