The New American Commentary series is an exceptionally acclaimed resource for ministers and Bible students who want to understand and expound the Scriptures. Notable features in each volume include: • Commentary based on the New International Version (NIV). • NIV text printed in the body of the commentary. • Sound scholarly methodology reflecting capable research in the original languages. • Interpretation emphasizing the theological unity of each book and Scripture as a whole. • Readable and applicable exposition. Gary V. Smith's second volume on Isaiah looks deeply and in wonder at the God who is both intimate and compassionate (Isaiah 40:28: "He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak") and larger than our comprehension of time and space (Isaiah 66:1: "Heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool").
