    1. It's a great tactic on the part of Eerdmans. Retire a commentary from the NICOT series, replacing it with something fairly different, then continue to sell the retired volumes. And thankfully they still print and sell this one.In preaching through Isaiah, Young has been the first thing I read every week. He is thorough, knows and discussed competing viewpoints, makes the bridges between the 'local' context of the prophecy, our current context and the fully-realized context.It has been interestin [...]

    2. In my opinion, this is the best, most thorough commentary on the book of Isaiah (Calvin's commentary is an obvious classic as well). I also highly recommend other works by E.J. Young: "The Prophecy of Daniel" and "My Servant the Prophets." (Note: the author supposedly wrote some of his works while on sabbatical in San Francisco – at my home town and church).

    3. A very readable commentary by the premier OT scholar of the 20th century. Young provides verse by verse commentary and consistently makes the connections between the church in the old and new covenants. Also worthwhile are the appendices, especially the first one, on the authorship of Isaiah. Spoiler - He demonstrates that Isaiah wrote all of Isaiah.
