Preaching from Isaiah, the book by Professor John P. Milton of Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minn., was published by Augsburg Publishing House of Minneapolis in 1953 and was reviewed by the present writer in the CONCORDIA THEOLOGICAL MONTHLY in the May issue of 1954 {pp. 407 f.). The purpose of this extended study is to stress the underlying principle of the work regarding the choice of sermon texts for the Sunday morning service, a principle which renders this book especially noteworthy and which is valid for many other areas of the Scriptures as a source for preaching texts.
