Commentary Series: The Book of Isaiah
by Dr. Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum
The book of Isaiah is one of the most popular and fascinating books of the Hebrew Scriptures. Its author, Isaiah, is often called the prince of prophets, for he wrote with extraordinary beauty and imagery. His work is full of facts about the society of Israel around the year 700 B.C. Its chief value, however, lies in the abundance of prophecy, ranging from near to far prophecies and everything in between. Like no other author before him, Dr. Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum has dissected the various levels of prophecy and provided a meticulous exegesis of the text. His theological orientation remains strictly dispensational with a pretribulational view of the rapture and is presented from a Messianic Jewish perspective. In his work, the author has consulted the great rabbis of the past and reproduced their viewpoints wherever appropriate. The result is a fascinating commentary that leaves no doubt that Isaiah foresaw both the first and second coming of the Jewish Messiah, as well as the final restoration of Israel in preparation for the Messianic kingdom.
