The related themes of King, servant, and Messiah that feature prominently in Isaiah are analyzed in this volume. Hugh Williamson examines the texts that focus on the role of a human figure in the establishment of God's ideal society. Despite changing protagonists, the author identifies a fundamental unity of the principles of this society. From this he argues that the predictive element within Isaiah is in the task to be undertaken and not the person who will do it.
