|Summary:|| In the course of 30 years dedicated study, John N. Oswalt has written a number of articles in journals and chapters in books on the book of Isaiah as a whole, or some aspect of it. These materials have here been collected in a single volume and arranged in something of a descending order, that is from more general treatments of the book as a whole and how he sees the parts contributing to the whole, to studies of themes, such as holiness, righteousness, the nations, and finally to treatments of specific segments.
