"Childs has presented a work of great erudition, careful analysis, and remarkable clarity of expression. We owe him a debt of sincere gratitude." Ellen F. Davis
"Probably no one but Brevard Childs could have written this lucid, fascinating, and vastly learned account of Christian hermeneutics and exegesis of Isaiah -- an account best understood as a nonreductionistic 'family history.' Without glossing over tensions and failures, Childs shows how complex is the process of reading the Bible in faith from generation to generation in the church." Christopher Seitz
"This is a magisterial volume -- learned, exhaustive, accessible. Brevard Childs gets to the hermeneutical problem that is ours, in our 'postmodern' instincts, yet whose resolution will come only from attending carefully to the history of interpretation. It risks understatement to say that this book is a towering, timely, unparalleled contribution from a man who has single-handedly held the lantern showing us the way ahead in our difficult days, now by turning his attention to the crucial history of reception of the book of Isaiah. Brilliant and full of insight." George J. Brooke
"Once again Brevard Childs has put us in his debt with a splendid and thought-provoking book that is much more than just a history of interpretation. Childs's analytical description of how Isaiah has been handled over two millennia is both a major contribution to our understanding of the many faces of Christian hermeneutics and a timely reminder that all those who use scripture should be keenly aware of their own methods and presuppositions."
