Isaiah’s writings have been described as the
“Brussels sprouts of the scriptures.” We know
they’re good for us — the Savior commanded us
to “search” them “diligently” — but some of us
read them reluctantly, hurriedly . . . or not at all.
Perhaps we’re overwhelmed by the complexity
of the writing, frightened by its style, or confused
by its ancient context and language. More
than any other book, this simple volume makes
Isaiah understandable, applicable, and teachable.
It provides a brief overview of each chapter
to help readers understand the context and content
of the writings, then presents an example of
one latter-day application or fulfillment for each
chapter. This approachable book will enable
readers to actually enjoy studying this remarkable
prophet’s writings and help them to ponder
other applications and fulfillments in our
This book is a wonderful study guide and teaching resourceBy Tyler, Submitted on 2015-02-25
I very much enjoyed Bro. Winn's and Bro. Ball's book on Isaiah. I found each chapter to be informative and also very accessible. This book really gives a great lesson plan for each chapter of Isaiah by explaining the context of the chapter, pointing out individual scriptures and then providing insights into modern day application. This book is a great tool for anyone teaching Old Testament courses or giving lessons on Isaiah. I would also highly recommend it for any individual who hopes to receive a firmer grasp of this book of scripture. It truly gave me a lot of insights and has made me more excited to continue to study this wonderful book.
