Many people have seen this verse as the proof-text of Jesus' divinity in the Old Testament. Even though this verse has traditionally been argued in this direction, Christian thinkers are now starting to break new ground by taking into consideration the historical context of the prophecy. One resource that has discovered a new understanding of this verse is the NET Bible (New English Translation). Remarkably this Trinitarian study Bible contains stunning insights into what Isaiah 9.6 is really saying.
These books, written by people from diverse backgrounds, express the simple truth that God is one. Some of them are more scholary while others are more autobiographical.

Although this verse is sometimes used to “prove” that Christ is God, the verse actually militates against the idea. Scripture states very clearly that Jesus was a man.
