Hugh Williamson's Isaiah 1–5 is the first of three volumes in a important new commentary on Isaiah 1–27. For over one hundred years International Critical Commentaries have had a special place among works on the Bible. They bring together all the relevant aids to exegesis—linguistic, textual, archaeological, historical, literary, and theological—to help the reader understand the meaning of the books of the Old and New Testaments. The new commentaries continue this tradition. All new evidence now available is incorporated and new methods of study are applied. The authors are of the highest international standing. No attempt has been made to secure a uniform theological or critical approach to the biblical text: contributors have been invited for their scholarly distinction, not for their adherence to any one school of thought.

Hugh Williamson's work in the renown ICC series is now the critical treatment of these chapters of Isaiah. Leaving no stone unturned, his two volumes on chapters 1–5 (2006) and 6–12 (2018), have already become essential reading for academic study of Isaiah. The completion of Williamson's work on Isaiah 1–27 is highly anticipated, and I only wish he could complete ICC volumes that cover the entire Isaianic corpus (though at this rate, he would need another lifetime to do so!).
