I am 86 now and cannot see very well and am very forgetful, but I am having a really wonderful time with Isaiah - the Lord is teaching me so much. I have never read a book like that before. Thank you so much. I think I'm on my third time round now!
...I am sure you must be surprised at a hand-written snail-mail letter, but I just wanted to say "thank you." I live alone now - with our daughter a few minutes away - but with lots of time now to really enjoy the Lord. "The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever." At 86 I'm on the second part. I'm so glad you publish books like mine.
An absolute gem... I find hope in every page. Like me, I believe you will wonder how can a book written thousands of years ago still speaks with such relevance. It is remarkable and amazing... After reading this book, I am hooked on Isaiah and will be reading Isaiah more than once this year.

This review is from: Isaiah By the Day: A New Devotional Translation (Hardcover)
This is a great resource to Have. After doing a year of study in Isaiah in a year long bible study sometime ago, I am still finding this book an absolute gem. I agree with everything Kevin Fiske said. I did not find the text rigid but found it refreshing instead.
This is the first devotional I will read to the end. With most devotionals, the author's comments take precedence and not the text. After a while, I find the devotional irrelevant for the day and eventually drop it off from my reading list. But this devotional is not the same. The text takes pre-eminence and the author skillfully brings out the beauty of Isaiah from his vast knowledge. Isaiah is so relevant for today. In a world filled with chaos, uncertainty, doom and gloom. I find hope in every page. Like me, I believe you will wonder how can a book written thousands of years ago still speaks with such relevance. It is remarkable and amazing.
In the past, I have been quite frustrated with Isaiah because I can't seem to see the flow of it. I understand passages but not the flow. After reading this book, I am hooked on Isaiah and will be reading Isaiah more than once this year. Where I once saw a God of anger and judgment as the main theme, I now see a loving God of Grace and mercy throughout the book --- like a golden thread across the blackness of sin and the consequences thereof. Christ fills the pages of Isaiah.
Because it is so good, I have and will buy a few more to give it away.
