Oswalt has presented to the theological world an excellent commentary on the book of Isaiah, it has not been rushed and one can sense hours of hard work being poured into this labour. I highly recommended this book alongside Youngs 3 vol commentary, if you want to go deeper into Isaiah buy these two commentary's and Youngs!

This really is an excellent commentary on Isaiah. I use this when I was studying Isaiah at WEST (a fine theological establishment) and I could see why it was one of the core texts. It is very thorough in contextualising each part of Isaiah, so that you are aware of just where you are in the book and exactly what you're dealing with in terms of text (whether it is historical, poetic or / and prophetic). As such this is very useful. The other strengths is that this is a very academic work dealing with all the technical and translational difficulties within the text and very usefully providing Oswalt's own translation of the text. This, coupled with the fact that it is written in a very straightforward and easy to understand style, steering clear of too much theological jargon, makes this a commentary that should be on any serious Bible scholars or preachers bookshelf. If you are looking to get a couple of commentaries on Isaiah, this should definitely be one of the academic ones and 'God delivers' which is found EP's Welwyn series would be a good choice as it will give you a good overview of the various passages.
