The Fifth Gospel Isaiah In The History Of Christianity

The Fifth Gospel Isaiah In The History Of Christianity

This is a new kind of commentary on some of the most famous languages and images in the Bible, showing how Isaiah has been used by Christians in all sorts of contexts to this day. There is much interest in the reader’s response, in the history of interpretation and in the sociology of sacred texts – in what the text does exactly as it is meant to be. With complete documentation and illustrations, Sawyer gives insight into Isaiah’s influence, from the cult of the Virgin Mary and anti-Semitism to Christian feminism and liberation theology.
