The Rev Dr Marie Isaacs, B.D., D.Phil., was my tutor at the University of London in NT studies. She was a formidable woman. She earned both of her two PhDs.

I met Rev Alex Motyer when he gave a lecture in London on the authorship of Isaiah. As a conservative evangelical he argued that the complete book was authored by the prophet Isaiah, a view that is not widely accepted by scholars today – see article here.
