2.0 out of 5 stars Not the cover I expected, 4 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The two stars do not relate to the content of the book as I have not yet had the opportunity to read it. They relate to the fact that I was hoping to have the book in the cover pictured above (the 1990s Coronet edition) but the book arrived in a different cover. This would not be so bad had I not purchased the book as part of this series.

Isaiah By Day (Daily Readings)
Isaiah By Day (Daily Readings)
by Motyer Alec

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Motyer Classic, 26 Mar 2012
This is an excellent devotional guide and a perfect companion to Motyer's more technical work on the book of Isaiah ('TOTC' and 'The Prophecy of Isaiah'). You get Motyer's own translation of the Hebrew text with some notes in the margins related to language and occasion. A short introduction helps to guide the reader in how to get the most out of the book and gives the reader an idea of the structure of the book (as Motyer sees it). He divides the book into four main sections:

Chapters 1-5. Isaiah's preface
Chapters 6-37. The Book of the King
Chapters 38-55. The Book of the Servant
Chapters 56-66. The Book of the Conqueror

Anyone familiar with his larger commentary will recognise the structure above. Probably the most interesting section for the general reader will be the 'Thought for the day' that ends each daily section. These show a keen awareness of how Isaiah works within the whole biblical canon and they also give a practical challenge to greater devotion to Isaiah's LORD. Well worth purchasing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the price., 24 Mar 2010
This is an excellent and handy resource for learning Syriac. The book assumes a working knowledge of Hebrew yet it sets out the exercises in short and manageable chapters. It is expensive for such a small paperback but well worth the extra price for the benefits to learning.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Resource, 15 Nov 2008
This review is from: READERS HEBREW BIBLE (Paperback)
At last, a readable and aesthetically pleasing Hebrew Bible. For those who have studied Hebrew but haven't the time to keep it up due their busy schedule, this is a must. The text is clear and less frequently occurring words are given at the bottom of each page. A perfect resource for those who prefer the scriptures in their hands to a computer screen from some software package.


Covenant and Salvation: Union with Christ: 4

5.0 out of 5 stars Salvation in covenant context, 15 Nov 2008
Michael Horton does a wonderful job of looking at soteriology in its covenant context. This is classical Reformed dogmatics brought into the present through the covenant framework. Horton is also to be commended for his erudite examination of the New Perspectives on Paul (NPP). It is good to see someone from the classic Reformed tradition interacting with the NPP without setting out to write a direct refutation.

God of Promise: Introducing Covenant Theology

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Intro to Covenant Theology, 15 Nov 2008
Michael Horton's work is of supreme value to the student of theology and the interested lay person alike. Although the cover describes it as an introduction to Covenant Theology it may be a little too full for the first time reader in this area. That said, Horton writes with an extremely engaging style and shows the value of the Covenant system for our understanding of the Bible. Whether you agree with everything that Horton says he is one of the finest minds working in theology today. All of his works deserve careful study.
