I am wanting to study Isaiah this next year - what commentaries/resources would you recommend?

I had the list copied from the Snipping Tool, but do not know how to paste a picture in these forums like others have, but here is the web link for Best will give you a start anyway.

Ron, I take a two way approach: I read a intro commentary and a more advanced commentary along with the text. So for Isaiah intro I would read Barry Webb (Bible speaks today) and/or Moyter (Tyndale Old Testament comentary). More advanced Moyter THe prophecy of Isaiah (not the Tydnale one) and/or Oswalt (NICOT). Both these are from a Reformed Conservative background, but you may swap them with other commentaries of similar deepth. These are the ones I have used. Using a basic comentary first gives you the lay of the land, and the more advanced fills in the details. Other basic ones you could use include Undestanding the Bible Commentary (or similar). Other Advanced ones include Young, ICC, and others. Use the good commentaries site as a guide There is also the Denver Seminary Bibliography listing. Google, Denver Theological Seminary Old Testament Bibliography. There is aso a Mobile Ed course, I believer (I have not used it). Look up the number of the course, then open the corse tool in Logos, and their should be a way of viewing the recommended books, this feature works for most courses. And Enjoy Isiaiah. Leaving you in God's Care and Grace

FYI - The Mobile Ed Isaiah course is on sale this Christmas.

Another idea for looking for reference works is to open the OT355 plan in your courses tool.  You should be able to see a list of suggested readings with the number of how many times they are referenced in the course.

All great ideas. 

I purchased the Mobile Ed course earlier this year, so I plan on going through that as well.  I hadn't thought of looking at the suggested readings, but I will do that.

There is also the OT355 Faithlife group.  If you follow that group, you will have access to documents (like reading lists) relating to the course.  It also is a great group to tag (with community notes) as you work through the course or any Isaiah reference work.  The more people that engage with the group the more we can develop a learning community around the book.

I took a course at seminary on Thomas Aquinas and would really like to see this resource ship soon.
