    A deep dive!

    Thumbs up for this great tool! I'm accustomed to so many forms of writings, to get insight of Gods Word, but this one is the best, till now. The book of Isaiah is one in which I have many of my promises, that's why I love it so much. Now I get a clearer view of what lies ahead. This book (3 Vol.) is so rich, cause its author mentions also other scholars view. What's great is, that it's just God's word explained, and so deep, that it accomplishes its purpose.

    Books provide excellent background information in addition to the conservative exposition of the Bible. Great resource for pastors, Sunday school teachers, or laymen wanting to better understand the teachings of Isaiah.

    Good basic commentary, an easy read. However, I was looking for a bit more commentary but not quite as much as in Oswalt's commentary.

    I appreciate the textual footnotes. He uses just enough to maintain relevance.

    In these books, Young tends to charge into personal/social application or prophetic prediction without looking into what personal/social issues were being addressed by the writer of Isaiah in his historical context. Young will often start down that road and I'll ask myself, "Why is Young on this? I don't even know what Isaiah ment by it - and Young is talking modern politics!" After I notice the logical disjunct, Young will go on for four or six pages elaborating on his (what I see to be a) wrong turn. It's not very helpful as a resource to consult first. I'm finding that in my studies of Isaiah I am consulting many other resources before going to Young (if I still have time for him). If you are looking for a commentator to spend some extended time with, consider the "NIV Application Commentary on Isaiah" by Oswalt. I often disagree with his approach too; but when I do, Oswalt's elaborations don't go on for pages and pages.
