Reading the Book of Isaiah

Full Product Description

Many scholars have approached both the origins of ancient city laments in some of the oldest Sumerian texts and how this "genre" found its way into the Tanakh/Old Testament. Randall Heskett goes a step further. He uses both historical criticism and a form-critical approach to analyze and assess Lamentation and Restoration of Destroyed Cities as oral traditions of ancient Israelite prophetic genres. He also shows how a later exilic/post-exilic redactional framework may have semantically transformed older prophetic genres about destruction and restoration to be reflexes of the events around 587 BCE.

Reading the Book of Isaiah by Randall Heskett was published by Palgrave Macmillan in September 2011. The ISBN for Reading the Book of Isaiah is 9780230116856.
