This new book in the "T&T Clark" approaches series introduces students and general readers to the book of "Isaiah". "An Introduction to the Study of Isaiah" provides readers with a guide to the central issues arising from various approaches to this influential prophetic text. Readers will be introduced to the diverse methods and results of modern Isaianic study. They will see how these approaches differ from, and relate to one another. After a brief introduction, this book gets right at the heart of the current diversity in "Isaiah" studies by identifying the trends in, and tracing the history of contemporary Isaianic scholarship. With this groundwork in place, this study examines various theories regarding the formation of "Isaiah", ways in which scholars connect "Isaiah" to its historical context, the contributions of literary theory to understanding "Isaiah", and finally theological approaches to the book. Because of its emphasis on method, this book will be important for students concerned with negotiating the vast and diverse body of scholarly literature that now surrounds this central biblical book. These guides have been developed for those taking a course in biblical studies in theological or ministerial education, and are designed to introduce the reader to the various approaches to the study of the bible. The series is ecumenical, and all the writers are professionally engaged in the teaching of biblical studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Jacob Stromberg is one of the leading young experts on Isaiah today. As this Introduction confirms, he is also one of its foremost teachers. Stromberg brings the breadth and depth of his learning to bear on this, the most complex book in the Hebrew Bible, unfolding its secrets to new generation of students and scholars. Leading his readers with ease through the labyrinth of modern studies on the book, Stromberg keeps his eye firmly fixed on the most central compositional and theological issues at play. He consistently proves himself a reliable and sure-footed guide. He writes with clarity and accessibility, without falling into reductionism. What is more, Stromberg's articulation of Isaiah's multifaceted, intertwined theological arguments is a remarkable achievement, lucid and graceful. This is without doubt the best introduction to Isaiah in English.' - William A. Tooman, University of St. Andrews, UK.--Sanford Lakoff
'A comprehensive and well-researched look at present Isaiah studies, with reflections on the practice of reading this challenging, composite work. Clearly and competently set forth, An Introduction to the Study of Isaiah does what its title says.' - Christopher Seitz, Wycliffe College, The University of Toronto, Canada.--Sanford Lakoff
