The only truly contentious part was the explanation of the sign of the virgin birth given to King Ahaz found in chapter 7. David Pawson's explanation makes no sense. That Ahaz would be walking through his harem and notice one of his concubines had had a baby and called him not Derek but Immanuel, and suddenly remember that Isaiah had given him this as a sign, is tosh. Immanuel is used solely throughout this book in reference to God himself, why would this be the exception? Indeed, 'virgin' is disputed but this word in this context is used to refer to a virgin in every other part of the OT, so why dispute it here? Even the word 'you' used by Isaiah gives clue to the fact this is 2 prophetic messages. 'You' plural is used when referring to this virgin birth, and is a prophecy to the house of David. A definite article is used, 'the virgin', not a random reference but alluding to a previously mentioned event. That would be to my mind the 'seed of the woman' given in Genesis chapter 3. A sign for the House of David, future.
The immediate prophecy to Ahaz is in the 'you' singular, referring to the sign that he would see in his lifetime, that before Isaiah's son had reached a certain age, the very kings who sought to destroy the line of David and depose him, would themselves be destroyed.
That aside, I really enjoyed this series and plan to use it as part of my continuing exploration of this amazing book.
