    One thing that I like about Wiersbe's commentaries is the big picture view he offers. This book on Isaiah offered a helpful overview of the 66 chapters that had just enough detail to give a good summary. He also picks up on specific words and phrases that a particular writer might use often.

    I remember a pastor from my youth once saying "A text without a context is a pretext for a prooftext." Meaning essentially, if you can't back up the motive for the verse you're sharing, you have cause to present evidence, i.e. "I do not think that means what you think it means" (The Princess Bride). Isaiah is one of those Old Testament books of the Bible from which a lot of (out-of-context) verses come, usually in a very inspirational package.

Isaiah is one of those Old Testament books of the Bible from which a lot of (out-of-context) verses come, usually in a very inspirational package. We're reminded of how God holds us in the midst of changing times, and He always has a greater plan. All true and good to remember, but not the whole story of Isaiah by half. It's a good study that looks at the larger picture of what was happening to the nation of Israel in its past, during the time it was written, and for the future return of Christ and His millennial reign. God was withholding His judgment in some areas, and unleashing it in others, which gives us a greater awe for His mercy and understanding of our need for a Savior. I took my time with this study, mostly because I felt myself rushing through the book and not appreciating the promises of each chapter if I pushed myself to use it as a daily Bible study. There were some days when I needed to simply read the Scripture and meditate on it, and then go to the commentary the next day to chew it over. There are some writers that lean more heavily toward the personal application in their Bible studies, and others that burrow deep into the historical context of Scripture, cross-referencing integral words and phrases, and keeping to a high-level view. Wiersbe does a good job of balancing between the two, and I really enjoy his commentaries.

    As far as commentaries go, this was neither great, but neither was it unsatisfactory. Bibically and doctrinally, "Be Comforted (Isaiah)..." was solid. However, it's written in the bland style that, over the last 20 or so years, I've seen with some Southern Baptist Sunday school Bible study materials I've seen in church. It informs, but it does not engage the reader --- even though Isaiah is one of the most dynamic and beautiful books in all of scripture. It follows more the format of a Bible stu As far as commentaries go, this was neither great, but neither was it unsatisfactory. Bibically and doctrinally, "Be Comforted (Isaiah)..." was solid.

It follows more the format of a Bible study than it does a true commentary. So, in summary, it is a satisfactory commentary, but not a great one. I have read better.

    I enjoyed this study a lot. I read a little each day -- but started by reading the Bible passage before reading Wiersbe's commentary. I learned so much about God and Israel. Now I can read Isaiah without being confused about everything! He does an excellent job of giving practice application to the truths learned. It is the third Wierbe study I have done and I am looking forward to doing more of them (especially since many of them are free through Kindle).

    This is the first time I have read right through a book in the bible and used a commentary to help me. I have found it to be both a challenging and enlightening experience. I don't believe that I would have persisted without the helpful insights and explanations offered by Warren Weirsbe. I'm ready for another now, perhaps Genesis...

    Commentary for the layman Really enjoyed this book. It gave a lot of explanation to a book of the Bible I find very confusing. I particularly found it helpful how it put Isaiah into historical context with other books of the Bible. Calling Isaiah a book about comfort sounded weird when I started but now I see that it is.

    Part of our required reading as we study the Book of Isaiah in Biblical School.

    Isaiah is not an easy book to unpack, and Wiersbe nails it again.

    Great commentary to go along with a bible study on Isaiah. I was really struggling throughout the study and this book opened new meanings for me and I was able to dig deeper into the Word!

    At times a bit too dispensational for me, but there are quality insights to the historical realities, which Isaiah was ministering in. Also, there are good application points that can be gleaned.

    Great read! Isaiah is a beautiful and poetic book, but also a difficult one to understand. Reading it in parallel with this commentary helped me understand it a lot more, especially the historical facts.

    I liked the book I like the book. I wish the KJV was used in the quotations. It helps a lot with understanding the Book of isaiah.

    Engaging Study Dr. Wiersbe makes the study of Isaiah interesting and practical. The review questions at the end of each chapter are great for personal reflection and application.

    I have found the books in the BE series to be helpful for Bible study, and this is no exception. Isaiah is a beautiful, poetic book, but also a difficult one to follow. Reading a passage then reading the commentary helped me understand it better.
