This review offers a critical reading of John Goldingay’s The Theology of the Book of
Isaiah from the author’s perspective as a Pentecostal literary critic and exegete. Focussing on Goldingay’s distinction between meaning and significance, it commends Goldingay’s attention to the difference between the theologies in the book of Isaiah and a variety of theologies which might be seen as arising from the book, and draws out some fundamental questions which Goldingay’s observations pose more broadly for Pentecostal interpreters.
