Isaiah (1st/2nd/3rd)
OT Commentary Survey - Major Prophets
In recent years there have been numerous commentaries on Isaiah published. Some of the better critical commenaties include those by Baltzer and Machinist, Blenkinsopp, Childs, and Wildburger, though if I had to recomend only one, I would go with Blenkinsopp. Childs is good, though perhaps too concerned with a canonical reading (his commentary on Exodus is superior).

Pastors will find much to ponder in the commentaires by Achtemeier, Hanson, Oswalt, Seitz, Knight.

On a more popular level, I find Goldingay's volume excellent, whiile more conservative readers will appreciate the volumes by Moyter and Oswalt.
