    1 thought on “Understanding Isaiah

    1. I finally finished this book. It took me a year or so-reading a few chapters a week. It has the actual King James Bible text of Isaiah with exhaustive explanation and research right next to it. It really is a masterpiece best taken in tiny increments. It really made this masterful literature applicable to me and understandable. Brilliant analysis by the authors.

    2. We got this book when we were studying Isaiah in our home evening class with George & Diana Black. It really helped because it explains every phrase and every chapter of Isaiah. It's a huge tome, but a good reference for really getting a grasp of this Old Testament prophet's writings.

    3. It was a long read but very informational and made the book of Isaiah in the Old Testament much easier to understand and more enjoyable to read.

    4. I wanted a book to explain Isaiah and most of the books I found just dumbed it down. I was glad I found this one because it didn't dumb is down. It was a great read, I highly suggest it.

    5. Wow, I'm really liking this book! I'm only in the middle of the first chapter of Isaiah, but already I see a great big difference in my understanding of the doctrine. This is a great book!

    6. 3.5 stars. This book is helpful as a reference to the book of Isaiah. I appreciated the reprinting of the chapters in a more poetic format with the "couplets" more noticeable in italics and underlining. I think that may have been the most helpful thing I will remember when I'm reading Isaiah's writings on my own. I read this as a companion to my scripture study, generally reading one chapter per day. I have to admit I got really bored after about a month and a half. I found myself much more inte [...]

    7. This book is a great companion for LDS readers of Isaiah. In the introduction, it specifically says that the book is not intended to be read cover to cover, which I disregarded. However, that advice is probably right. This is very much a text book on Isaiah and should be used more as reference for specific passages or chapters that you'd like to know more about. Each chapter starts with a brief section devoted to applying the corresponding Isaiah chapter to modern-day, LDS readers. Then it goes [...]

    8. If you've ever, or always, groan when you get to the teachings of Isaiah, then this is a book you should take time to read. I've struggled through Isaiah for my whole life and finally decided (based on the fact that Jesus quoted Isaiah and commanded us to study the words of Isaiah) that I need to have an understanding of and love of this book of scripture.Understanding Isaiah was not a simple book I worked at it for months really wanting to gain an understanding of Isaiah's teachings. But the bo [...]

    9. Eight days late, but I finished this book to go along with my scripture study in 2009. I hate to admit it, but most of the time I when I read Isaiah in the Book of Mormon I either skimmed over it as fast as I could or I just skipped it. I was missing out. I understand better Nephi's love for Isaiah's words better now. His words written 2500 years ago were written about this day and this time. No wonder Nephi, Moroni, the Savior, and many other prophets tell us to read Isaiah's words, to ponder t [...]

    10. Isaiah is the only book in the scriptures that Jesus Christ specifically named when he commanded us to "search the scriptures". I have read it many times, but it is not easy to understand. The more I read, the more questions I have! This book helps make some of the more difficult passages of Isaiah clear. I recomend it as a companion to Isaiah, to be read in concert.

    11. I was looking for a book to help me decipher Isaiah and this one was excellent, likely my favorite of all I looked through. I liked how it went through verse by verse with explanations so I could study just the verses I needed at anytime. It had great historical and literary insights. Great resource if you really want to dig your heels in and understand Isaiah.

    12. I bought this to use as a study help the LAST time we were reading the Old Testament. It's a fabulous way to read the book of Isaiah.I'm not really "done" with the book but will be returning to it again and again.

    13. A very useful treatise on how to study and understand the words of the prophet Christ himself declared: "Great are the Words". A study tool as opposed to a reader. I have a far better understanding now than before!

    14. I loved this book. It breaks down Isaiah's writing into an understandable structure and demonstrates the art and poetry of that great prophet's words. I highly recommend it to anyone struggling to understand Isaiah (all of us).

    15. Pretty good. Especially good as a source of etymological tidbits. Found myself wanting more in the way of literary analysis and historical background. Kinda wish Michael Wilcox would publish a book on Isaiah.

    16. An excellent commentary on the book of Isaiah for Mormon readers. As with trying to read any scriptural commentary from cover to cover, this took a while to get through. However, it did wonders for my understanding of Isaiah.

    17. Thick book, but well worth the time and effort. Put the difficult chapters into perspective. The main reason we don't understand is because he talks in a historical and colloquial style that we don't understand. This book puts that conversation into context.

    18. I absolutely love this book!! It has all of these cross references, explanations, and quotes from modern day prophets. Also, it has the whole chapter written down, then it breaks it apart and goes further into detail =0)

    19. I took a religious studies class on Isaiah. It really helped me to understand and thus appreciate the great insights, prophecies, and poetry of Isaiah. My teacher recommended this book. It helped to expand my knowledge even farther and now Isaiah is one of my favorite books in the Bible.

    20. For my study of the book of Isaiah this reference has been vital. It is written to be a reference and not read straight through, but since I was reading King James Bible version, the Gileadi translation and this book's scholarly interpretation together I really ended up reading the whole thing.

    21. Bought this book 10 years ago and it took me about 2 years to read it once I started. It's really more of a reference book than something enjoyable to read straight through but has a lot of good insight.

    22. Read the book, but I still don't understand Isaiah.Okay, that's harsh - I did learn some cool stuff, but all in all, I don't think this is the most useful book written for this purpose. Not bad, but not the be-all end-all, by any means.

    23. Finally finished my first study of Isaiah. I'm sure there will be more coming, but Donald Parry has helped me immensely to begin.

    24. Good introductory study or a complex subject. Isaiah has puzzled scholars for centuries and this book helps provide context for the world he lived in.

    25. I will probably be reading this for a LONG time, but so far, it's amazing! It's nice to have a supplement while reading this incredible book of the bible! :)

    26. A great reference book to help understand some of the meaning and context of Isaiah. A bit of a bear to read straight through.
