Associate Editor for The Gospel Coalition
Few things are more important for faithful biblical interpretation than reading Scripture in light of its master narrative. The Christ-Centered Exposition series aims to do just that. In a postmodern age, these commentaries provide pastors and lay people an invaluable resource that is unswervingly committed to the authority of Scripture and the centrality of the Gospel in the Bible’s storyline.
Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr., President
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“I welcome Pastor Andy Davis’s contribution to the Christ-Centered Exposition Series. His love of the Scriptures and his love of the Savior are equally well represented in his exposition of Isaiah. Davis applies his wealth of pastoral experience with remarkable contemporary references to make this commentary insightful, accessible and useful for congregations as well as pastors.”
Bryan Chapell – pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church, Peoria, Illinois; founder and chairman of Unlimited Grace, a radio and online Bible-teaching ministry; and President Emeritus of Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri
“As a part of the Christ-Centered Exposition series, Andy Davis’ devotional commentary on Isaiah fits well. I have known Dr. Davis for many years and he is one of the most careful, thoughtful, biblically-centered theologians I know. Davis well affirms Christ in Isaiah, and ties in the unified story of redemptive history of which Jesus Christ is preeminent. The book contains easy to read, rich, practical, sermonic presentations of each chapter of Isaiah that will be a great resource for any pastor or teacher working through his prophecy.”
Eric A. Mitchell – associate professor of Old Testament & Archaeology, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas
“Without a doubt Isaiah is one of the most important books in the Old Testament, and the New Testament use of Isaiah gives it a particular significance. Andy Davis’s commentary is a helpful addition to studies on Isaiah at several levels. He takes seriously the historical message of Isaiah so that he doesn't simply leap to the New Testament and avoid the Old Testament context. At the same time, the fulfillment of Isaiah in the New Testament receives careful and wise attention. Finally, Davis applies the message of Isaiah to today's world. I recommend this work enthusiastically.”
Thomas R. Schreiner – James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“This wonderful commentary by Andy Davis is theological through and through, with a focus upon the glory of God and the salvation he offers in Jesus the Messiah. Davis helps us see the urgency of Isaiah for today and apply the book to the church in practical terms. I warmly commend this commentary for pastors and theologians alike.”
Heath A. Thomas – dean and professor of Old Testament, Herschel H. Hobbs College of Theology & Ministry, Oklahoma Baptist University
“Andy Davis is a faithful, seasoned expositor with theological depth and pastoral care, and in this volume he provides steady guidance for anyone endeavoring to preach the prophecy of Isaiah. With clear, detailed outlines and concise explanations, Davis explains the text, making theological and practical points of application. This volume will be a blessing to preachers.”
Ray Van Neste – associate professor of Christian Studies and director of the R. C. Ryan Center for Biblical Studies at Union University

While I do commend this book to those who have yet to read it, I will offer this criticism. In my opinion Davis seems to overreact to the “Second Isaiah” scholars (p.4) with his emphasis on predicted and fulfilled prophesy that can distract from greater themes in Isaiah. It occasionally came across as if God made predictive prophesies in order to demonstrate that he could make predictions that came true? Consequently, Davis sometimes misidentifies the main idea of a passage.
For example the chapter on Isaiah 9:1-7 (“Unto us a child is born …”) Davis posits that the main idea is “The deity and humanity of Jesus Christ are clearly predicted.” Now I agree with his statement. But I disagree that this is the main idea of Isaiah 9:1-7. This passage was offered initially to Israel and ultimately to us to give God's people comfort and hope in the beneficent and eternal rule of the Messiah. The nature of the Messiah's rule must be understood in contrast with the rule of Judah's captor Babylon. Today we can contrast the Messiah's rule with the rule of whatever earthly government we happen to live under. Davis eventually gets around to these ideas, but his emphasis throughout the commentary on predictions and proofs were to me a bit distracting from some more important themes in the text.
Even with this criticism I consider Andy Davis to have done us a great service in showing us how Christ is in view in every page and chapter of the book of Isaiah. I encourage you to read this book.
