“Marvin Sweeney’s learned monograph will shortly become a standard reference work for all future researchers of Isaiah 1–39. He offers exhaustive bibliographies, lucid background material for the current scholarly agenda, and a detailed structural analysis of each individual unit. . . Useful material for the continuing interpretive enterprise. “
Ronald E. Clements
“Sweeney’s book marks a major milestone in Isaiah studies. The close examinations of the forms of the prophecies of Isaiah 1–39 and the role that this primary collection has played in the structure and formation of the book of Isaiah as a whole are splendidly shown. . . This volume must surely become an indispensable starting point for the serious student, and I warmly recommend it.”
