Description: In recent years, the phenomenon of allusion has attracted increasing attention in scholarly study of the Hebrew Bible. The Mouth of the Lord Has Spoken is a detailed and comprehensive analysis of allusions in Isaiah 40-66. This important contribution to the literature explores how allusions are identified through verbal similarities in biblical passages and illustrates how these similarities are the result of literary dependence.
