Publisher's Summary

You are about to enter a vision-zone of Heaven descending upon the Earth unveiled before Isaiah, the first of the prophets, the prophet of Zion. The Book of Isaiah is an enormous collection of prophecies described as “the vision”. It is not simply a teaching or a historical record; it is the overarching vision of the heart of God revealed to his seer-prophet.

Explore the vision of a man who saw the glory of God and spoke with burning lips, for true prophetic ministry flows from this “vision” until it grows into a burden.

By embarking on this journey, believers will learn to better understand and appreciate the role of the prophet - to foretell the future, but also to speak truth to a lost and sinful generation. History Academy makes powerful connections between the wealth and plenty of Isaiah's time and the abundance and decadence of our present world.

In an ever increasingly busy world, History Academy inspires us to slow down and drink deeply from the living well of God's word. She provides tools and inspiration for soaking it in.

The Book of Isaiah is the whole Bible in miniature.

Yet the prophet lived and died (horribly) centuries before Jesus was born. A miracle in words! These studies were first given verbally by the author to his congregation. Now in audio format, listeners are invited to come with me through these marvelous messages which are as timely as they are timeless.

History Academy follows previous best-selling texts with this comprehensive introduction to the Book of Isaiah. Here is a survey with depth, presenting the prophet's overarching themes and sweeping issues while including copious details that round out a study of the man and his work. This volume is useful to any serious student of the Bible.

"Yahweh sits enthroned, high and lifted up / A shoot grows from the stump of Jesse / A Servant pours himself out to death / Kings and nations stream to Zion."

The Book of Isaiah's imagery sparkles as it inspires. It draws us in to meditate and extends our vision toward the future. But what should we make of this sprawling and puzzling book, so layered and complex in its composition, as a whole?

History Academy helps us make sense of this Book of Isaiah as a tapestry of patterned collages, parts put together in an intentional whole. The theology of the Book of Isaiah studies the prophecies, messages and theology of each section of the complex book, then unfurls its unifying themes from Zion to David to the Holy One of Israel.

History Academy also provides substantial discussions of several issues crucial to the Book of Isaiah.

The commentary proper, based on History Academy's own translation of the Hebrew text, provides pastors, scholars, and students with a lucid interpretation of the Book of Isaiah in its ancient context as well as an exposition of its message for today.

Hitherto unseen literary evidence reveals a new dimension to Isaiah s prophecy that uses Israel s ancient history as an allegory of an end-time scenario.

Isaiah s Hebrew gospel preempts the New Testament by teaching the path through which God empowers his children to ascent to the highest heaven.

Isaiah was the most comprehensive of all prophets: His writing spans the entirety of history, from the creation of the world to the creation of "a new Heavens and new Earth". No other prophet matches his majestic eloquence on the glory of God and the redemptive work and sufferings of the coming Messiah, all the while making us clearly aware of God's abounding Grace.
