Great reference book
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

Ludlow is my favorite author on Isaiah. He provides insight on Isaiah that are easy to understand and make Isaiah's writings approachable. This book does have a similar introduction and historical context in the the beginning as his other book "Isaiah: Prophet, Seer Poet" and it teaches some of the same things but it adds the additional focus on the writings in Isaiah and showing how they relate to the latter day.

Unlock the chiasmas for yourself!

This book unlocks the mystery of the chiasmas for me. I've never known what it was or why it was. The Jewish way of prophesying did confuse me before but now makes sense and is more powerful. Truly, the Lord speaks our individual languages so all of us can plainly understand the prophecies in Isaiah and the Book of Mormon.
