Childs also makes many helpful comments on the text itself, giving strong arguments for his interpretations (cf. his excellent discussion on the tested stone of Isaiah 28:16). If I could only use one commentary on Isaiah, this one would be it, although it is kind of expensive at $60. You may want to check to see if you can get it for less.
Rev. Marc Axelrod
Anyone who is familiar with Childs' previous and extensive body of work can expect more of the same. His interests in theological exegesis and so-called canonical criticism charactise this volume and make it especially suited for those who want a commentary on Isaiah, not a commentary on commentaries on Isaiah, although Childs of course does interact with secondary literature where necessary.
Childs' volume on Isaiah is certainly one which all will find helpful, from student to pastor to scholar. One might wish to supplement Childs' volume with the commentaries by Blenkinsopp (AB) and Oswalt (NICOT).
A good commentary for a liberal theologian, which is probabley why liberals don't like him.
