Sweeney -- Isaiah 28-33 : blest be the tie that binds (Isaiah together) / Gary Stansell -- Reversals of fortune in the ancient Near East : a study of the Babylon oracles in the book of Isaiah / Chris A.

Wells, Jr. -- Allusions and illusion : the unity of the book of Isaiah in light of Deutero-Isaiah's use of prophetic tradition / Benjamin D. Sommer -- pt. 2. Is meaning located in the reader? Reading Isaiah from beginning (Isaiah 1) to end (Isaiah 65-66) : multiple modern possibilities / David M. Carr -- No strength to deliver : a contextual analysis of Hezekiah's proverb in Isaiah 37.3b / Katheryn Pfisterer Darr -- The 'scope' of Isaiah as a book of Jewish and Christian scriptures / Gerald T. Sheppard -- Figurative speech and the reading of Isaiah 1 as scripture / Roy F. Melugin -- Prophet, redactor and audience : reforming the notion of Isaiah's formation / Edgar W. Conrad.
Summary: This collection of essays arises from the lively discussions in the Formation of the Book of Isaiah Seminar of the Society of Biblical Literature. The essays exhibit the diversity that has always been present in the Seminar. Each contributor has a unique perspective and thus extends the frontiers of research on the book of Isaiah. Yet, taken as a whole, the essays fall into two broad groups, being either 'objective' in their approach to the text-embracing historical-critical method or a synchronic approach in which text rather than reader is the focus-or 'postmodern', in the sense that meaning.
