About "Isaiah (Straight To The Heart Of Series)"
:More than any other book in the Old Testament, Isaiah reveals the depth of God's character, the depth of the Gospel and the depth of God's great plan for world history. Isaiah wants us to know that God is holier than we think (Isaiah 1-12), and to warn us that God is sterner than we think (Isaiah 13-35). And yet, he also wants to reassure us that God is stronger than we think (Isaiah 40-55), and to call us to action because God is closer than we think (Isaiah 56-66). Isaiah wants his prophecies to kill off our small-minded ideas about God: He wants to open our eyes to the Holy One of Israel; to stretch our minds and blow our senses with the reality of God. Isaiah has good news: God is far bigger than we think. Straight to the Heart of Isaiah is one of a series of devotional commentaries which allows people to get to grips with each book of the Bible one bite at a time. Each book contains 60 punchy and relevant chapters, crammed with fascinating and accessible scholarship.
