Paul Hoskisson reviews Victor Ludlow's book on Isaiah.
Paul Y. Hoskisson, Review of Victor Ludlow's Isaiah: Prophet, Seer, and Poet, Bigham Young University Studies 23, no. 4 (1983): 503-508
With the publication of Isaiah: Prophet, Seer, and Poet , Victor
L. Ludlow has accomplished what few scholars have done - presented
a worthy commentary on one of the most difficult books in world
literature. The task that Victor L. Ludlow set for himself would have
discouraged lesser scholars, but he has the credentials and the will to
pursue the project. The work examines the "historical context,
literary style, scriptural context and doctrinal application" of Isaiah
and is designed "to help the readers of Isaiah to understand his
writings" (p. xi). Here for the first time Latter-day Saints have at
their command a commentary on Isaiah that brings together LDS
doctrine, reputable scholarship, and an informed discussion of the
nature of the Hebrew writings of Isaiah.
