Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Writing and Reading the Scroll of Isaiah: Studies of an Interpretive Tradition contains the table of contents, a preface, a list of abbreviations and list of contributors. The book combines recent approaches that treat the formation of the final form of the book of Isaiah with the more conventional historical-critical approaches that treat the use of traditions by the book's authors and editors. It is divided into three major sections: the formation and leitmotifs of the book of Isaiah, specific oracles and passages within Isaiah, and the interpretation of Isaiah in late antiquity. The book contains discussions both of the book of Isaiah itself and of interpretation in general, because it explores a single interpretive stream through its various stages and tributaries. The three sections reflect roughly the three chronological stages in the composition and transmission of the book of Isaiah.

Keywords: book of Isaiah; historical-critical approaches; interpretive tradition; late antiquity; leitmotifs; specific oracles
