Editorial Reviews

Review

"The single best resource for faithful biblical exposition available today. A great boon for genuine reformation!"
Timothy George, Founding Dean, Beeson Divinity School; General Editor, Reformation Commentary on Scripture

"For this outstanding series of expository commentaries, Kent Hughes has assembled a team of unusually gifted scholar-preachers. The series will be widely used and much sought after."
Eric J. Alexander, Retired Senior Minister, St. George's-Tron Parish Church, Glasgow, Scotland

"The Preaching the Word commentary series is one of my favorites. The focus upon explaining a text with preaching it as the goal makes the series resonate with the priorities of the pulpit. No academic aloofness here, but down-to-earth, preacher-to-preacher meat for God's people."
Bryan Chapell, President, Covenant Theological Seminary

"I'm delighted to endorse the philosophy behind the series edited by my friend Kent Hughes. Here sounds out the voice not of the scholar in the study but of the scholar in the pulpit. The authors are all able teachers who regularly expound God's living Word to his people. May this rich material give us 'patterns of preaching' that will not only feed the flock, but, by God's grace, change the church."
R. C. Lucas, Retired Rector, St. Helen's Church, Bishopsgate, London, England

Isaiah: God Saves Sinners by Raymond C. Ortlund, Jr. (Senior Pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church in Nashville, Tennessee) is an expository commentary of the Old Testament Book of Isaiah. As an informative and inspirational companion to the studying this great Biblical prophet, Isaiah: God Saves Sinners offers a "reader friendly" and accessible understanding of Isaiah's writings, and is to be given especially high praise for its remarkable analysis. God Saves Sinners is commended to students of the scriptures as an invaluable and irreplaceable commentary and reference.

The Preaching the Word commentary series, published by Crossway, has labeled itself as the commentary written by pastors for pastors, as well as for all who teach or study God's Word. I fall into the "teach or study God's Word" category and I must say that the commentary on Isaiah in this series lives up to that description. The commentary is very readable and anyone who is a student of God's Word will find it highly accessible, providing a clear exposition of the book of Isaiah.

The Preaching the Word commentary series is currently going through a revision and the copy that I am reviewing is the new revision. I am not familiar with the old so I cannot compare the two, but I will attempt to communicate the layout and look of this edition. Ascetically speaking the commentary is very simple, a white dust jacket with minimal design, but it looks nice and stands out on a shelf filled with mostly colorful commentaries. Once, inside the reader will find a table of contents, showing the titles for each chapter, as this is how the commentary is divided. The verses are given in parenthesis for each chapter, so finding a particular verse and turning to it in a timely manner is easy. One thing I did notice is the lack of thorough introduction to the book. Most commentaries will give an introduction to the book, providing the layout of the book, the authorship, a historical introduction, etc. This commentary does not provide that. Instead it opts to go straight to the exposition of the text. I do not feel negatively about this format, I am only presenting it because if you are looking for a more technical commentary this is not for you.

With that being said this commentary excels as what it was written for, namely a readable exposition of the text.

Having done the background study with Alec Motyer and John Oswalt, Ortlund takes us on an enlightening journey into the Old Testament Prophetic Book of Isaiah. Ortlund doesn't worry us with a lot of the technical details of O.T prophetic interpretation (already done by Motyer and Oswalt), instead he opens with great insight the world and the message of Isaiah in a way that lets us see not only Isaiah and his times and message but we also are given insight into the messages' implications for today's church. It's here that Ortlund, in every chapter, gives us clear, impactful insight and applications for the message of Isaiah.
If you are looking to see one pastors' excellent "preaching approach" to the Book of Isaiah, you couldn't do better than taking a look at Ray Ortlund's "Isaiah."

Unfortunately, after field-testing this volume on an extended study in Isaiah, it offers little to a pastor trying to exegete and give an exposition himself. These are just sermons from Ortlund, not exegetical commentary. In my use of it, it only came in handy trying to find sermon illustrations.

I have been preaching through Isaiah and have found this commentary very helpful. It is basically Ortlund's own sermons on Isaiah I guess - and commentaries written by people who are obviously preachers themselves help me as I study to think clearly and pastorally. It is easy to read and gets into the text well in a way that helps the reader engage and prayerfully apply it. This book has been a great buy.

I never have done anything with Isaiah. Not the easiest book to understand. But with this commentary,
it is a joy, a pleasure, and a time of discovery of the true message and meaning in a way that is
easy to understand and share. i would give it more stars if there were more available.

This is by far the best commentary on the book of Isaiah that I have read. It is readable enough for even a casual read but has the depth of a theological study. Christ-centered, Gospel focused and God glorifying. I highly recommend.

Helps most in understanding the O.T. Text in light of the New Testament. Tends to miss Isaih's vison for community and justice in favor of an individualistic approach to the text.
