Summary:"Study of the book of Isaiah has in recent times been strongly marked by a tension between synchronic and diachronic approaches. The first is favored mainly by English-speaking, the second by German-speaking scholars. Berges's book attempts to mediate between the two poles, arguing that the final form analysis and the tracing of the development of that form are deeply interdependent." -- Back Cover
