The bottom line: Motyer’s commentary is an insightful, comprehensive analysis of the OT text that will certainly shed new light on the reader’s understanding of the book of Isaiah.
Congratulations to all those who managed to get through The Prophecy of Isaiah! More of a reference than a casual read, this will provide an enormous amount of material for biblical exegesis and hermeneutic analysis. Keep is mind, however, that this commentary is a tough read-through as the author breaks the text down line-by-line (and quite often word-by-word). I often found myself taking a few hours just to get through a handful of pages while referring to my adjacent Bible and taking notes. In the end, it was worth it, as my understanding of Isaiah is leaps and bounds greater than I ever expected. A treasure trove of knowledge awaits you.
