Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J. Presents In-Depth Thematic Commentary on Isaiah to Make the Old Testament Scroll More Accessible and Efficacious for All

Feb. 6, 2024

GASTONIA, N.C., Feb. 6, 2024 /Christian Newswire/ -- Author of over twenty books, Fr. Mitch Pacwa, has published his newest work with TAN Books, The Commentary on the Book of Isaiah: An In-Depth Look at the Gospel of the Old Testament, a compelling guide for Catholics being released on Feb. 6th, 2024 to enlighten their understanding of the faith and lead them on a path of sanctity and truth. Fr. Pacwa, a well-respected Jesuit Scripture Scholar, and host of EWTN Live, Scripture & Tradition, and Open Line Wednesday, unpacks this Old Testament treasure in order to make it more understandable for the everyday Catholic.

Fr. Pacwa explained, "Because the Isaiah scroll is so complicated in the way it was written, and because most Biblical commentaries on this book of the bible are very scholarly, I wanted to write in a way that made it accessible for all. Isaiah is a book that every Catholic should read, understand, and meditate on because of how central it is for understanding our salvation."

Fluent in twelve languages, Fr. Pacwa draws from his deep knowledge of the ancient biblical languages of Hebrew, Koine Greek, Ugaritic, and Aramaic to uncover the mysteries contained in this prophetic book to help guide Catholics through this essential biblical text.

"Given how much the lectionary dwells on Isaiah (more than Mark!), it is a treasure to have this well-researched guide from Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J. which combines highly detailed explanations of the history and language of the book with a lively concern for its spiritual application," shared Dr. John Bergsma, Professor and scripture scholar with the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology.

Pacwa further explained, "I organized it by chronological history and uncovered various themes in order to help the reader receive all the grace and blessings this beautiful book has to offer. I also wrote this commentary for academia and clergy with hopes that priests and deacons who preach on Isaiah could use it to help discover deep insights that may otherwise be difficult to grasp."

Fr. Pacwa says, "It is a great privilege for me to present this insightful commentary in order to draw the reader to a deeper understanding of our Biblical heritage and of the prophetic messages of Isaiah, 'God will save His people,' which is more relevant today than ever."
