The Holy One of Israel : studies in the book of isaiah by John N Oswalt( )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growing out of the work that the author did in preparing two major commentaries on Isaiah, these essays range from comprehensive to specific, and from popular to scholarly. They first appeared in biblical dictionaries, scholarly journals, and popular periodicals. Gathered here for the first time, they display in various ways how the author sees the various parts of Isaiah functioning together to give a coherent message to the church. The opening chapters lay out Oswalt's understanding of the overall message of the book of Isaiah. Subsequent chapters consider such themes as holiness and righteousness as they function in that larger structure. The concluding chapters look at selected sections of Isaiah in more detail, noting how those specific messages contribute to the overall whole
Isaiah : the NIV application commentary : from biblical text- to contemporary life by John N Oswalt( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and Korean and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Isaiah wrestles with the realities of people who are not convicted by the truth but actually hardened by it, and with a God whose actions sometimes seem unintelligible, or even worse, appears to be absent. Yet Isaiah penetrates beyond these experiences to an even greater reality. Isaiah sees God's rule over history and his capacity to take the worst of human actions and use it for good. He declares the truth that even in the darkest hours, the Holy One of Israel is infinitely trustworthy. Exploring the links between the Bible and our own times, John Oswalt shares perspectives on Isaiah that reveal truths for our twenty-first century lives. --From publisher's description
The Bible among the myths : unique revelation or just ancient literature? by John N Oswalt( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sixty years ago, biblical scholars typically maintained that Israel's religion was unique, that it stood in marked contrast to the faiths of its ancient Near Eastern neighbors. But nowadays it is widely affirmed that Israelite religion mirrors that of other West Semitic societies. What accounts for this radical change, and what are its implications for our understanding of the Old Testament? Dr. John N. Oswalt says theological and philosophical convictions account for this new attitude among scholars, rather than a revision to the data itself. Its roots lie in the Western world's increasing hostility to the idea of revelation. Revelation, which presupposes a reality that transcends the world of the senses, is objectionable to people because it assumes the existence of a realm over which they have no control. Oswalt makes a detailed comparison of the Old Testament and the other ancient Near Eastern religions. While not advocating a "the Bible says it, and I believe it, and that settles it" point of view, he asserts convincingly that the Bible's historical claims cannot be disassociated from its theological claims. - Publisher

Lectures in Old Testament theology by Dennis F Kinlaw( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Old Testament shows how God first revealed himself to humankind. Though complex and often puzzling, it gives us essential insight into Yahweh's dealings with us. Dr. Kinlaw believes that the Old Testament depicts a just God who is nonetheless loving and merciful. Rather than an implacable judge, God more often appears in the Old Testament as a compassionate, self-sacrificing Father." -- Publisher's description

Isaiah : the NIV application commentary : from biblical text- to contemporary life by John N Oswalt( )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A unique commentary that explores each passage from three vital perspectives: original meaning, bridging context, contemporary significance. Isaiah wrestles with the realities of people who are not convicted by the truth but actually hardened by it, and with a God whose actions sometimes seem unintelligible, or even worse, appears to be absent. Yet Isaiah penetrates beyond these experiences to an even greater reality. Isaiah sees God's rule over history and his capacity to take the worst of human actions and use it for good. He declares the truth that even in the darkest hours, the Holy One of Israel is infinitely trustworthy
