When the resurrected Savior appeared in the Americas to the people of Nephi, He quoted from the writings of the Prophet Isaiah and then declared, "Ye ought to search these things. Yea, a commandment I give unto you that ye search these things diligently; for great are the words of Isaiah." The commandment to study the words of Isaiah still applies to us today, yet often we tend to skip over his writings in the Old Testament or Book of Mormon because they seem so difficult to understand. Fortunately, there's help!
In this comprehensive five-talk set, renowned gospel scholar Terry B. Ball provides the keys for unlocking the rich teachings of this ancient prophet. In each of these enlightening talks, Brother Ball helps us better understand Isaiah by targeting a specific topic. These topics include:
Talk 1 - Study skills for searching Isaiah
Talk 2 - Isaiah's teachings about Jehovah
Talk 3 - Isaiah's message about the Mortal Messiah
Talk 4 - Isaiah's prophecies of the Millennial Messiah
Talk 5 - Isaiah's teachings for the latter days
Understanding the Words of Isaiah is a welcome tool to help us all see that, indeed, "great are the words of Isaiah."

I bought the version on CD and I listen to it while commuting to and from work. It's a 5 CD set. I especially like CD
I am a Gospel Doctrine teacher in our ward. I was given Terry Ball's tapes on Isaiah and was excited about the clearness and simple approach that I could use for myself and the class. Brother Ball is highly knowlegeable in the scriptures, the languages,and history which can give incredible insight. I had to order a set of tapes for myself so I could give back the ones I had borrowed.
