object of this book is not to give, in any sense, a Commentary on the book
of the prophet Isaiah; or an "Introduction,” so called. But it is
simply to deduce the scope of the book, as a whole, from its structure.
Most commentators offer their own analysis of the book, and these differ
very widely one from another.
There is room, therefore, for an attempt to exhibit the structure of
the Book, on the principle of Correspondence, as discovered and developed
by the late Thomas Boys, M.A.
But it may be well to state at the outset that the study does not approach
this prophecy from the standpoint of human agency, or of a literary performance,
but from the side of the Divine authorship.
The researcher and his research comes from the stand of one who believes
God, and who says "Let God be true, and every man a liar." He seeks
evidence only in Scripture: in facts, and not in human reasoning; and leave
his readers to draw their own conclusions from those facts.
