      This is another great read from the Preaching The Word series.

    • Josh says:

      An excellent commentary overall. I really like Ray Orland's writing style, and his heart for the gospel. I occasionally disagree with nuances of his interpretation or application, but that's to be expected in the book the size of Isaiah! Overall highly recommend it.

      Though not for the faint of heart, anyone who wants to understand the book of Isaiah more deeply, would benefit from this pastoral commentary. I have long been impressed by Ray Ortlund’s wisdom and apparent kindness, though his intellect certainly shines here, As well.

      This is one of the best books I have ever read. Picking it up was rather providential, and I am so thankful because it spoke in so many ways to where I am at in my life. Highest recommendation.

    • Joshua D. says:

      Homiletically helpful. Sometimes Ortlund takes too large of text chunks, in my opinion, making the sermons too long and far-reaching.

    • Lisab says:
