Description

In the period that Isaiah the prophet lived there was immense political upheaval across the ancient near-east. The people of God had a choice - to follow their own human policies or to follow the promises of God. They chose to be unfaithful. The prophet breaks in and calls them to repent asking them to stop violating the covenant. In today's setting this is a message that your hearers will identify with, readily identifying ourselves with the deceitful hearts of the people of Judah, and learn also from their mistakes how our own divided hearts may equally lead us astray. This is not another commentary but a useful resource, which will help the pastor/ preacher, a small group leader or a youth worker communicate a message of grace when speaking from the book of Isaiah. It will give you help in planning and executing a lesson in particular with background, structure, key points and application.
Teaching Isaiah is part of the 'Teaching the Bible' series and is published in conjunction with Proclamation Trust Media whose aim is to encourage ministry that seeks above all to expound the Bible as God's Word for today.

... gives us here a helpful resource to be used when actually teaching the book, either from the pulpit or in a small group setting. He provides help in planning, structuring and applying key points throughout Isaiah in a style that is neither too heavy nor too simplistic and patronising.
This book is the ninth instalment of the 'Teaching the Bible' series from the Proc Trust and Christian Focus, and anyone who has used previous volumes in that series will quickly see the advantages of this one also. David Jackman has worked on Isaiah as both a pastor and as the Director of the Cornhill Training Course over many years, and it is immediately clear from reading this that he has laboured long and hard to find a main line through the mass of material in the book without sacrificing the distinctive flavour and emphases of this particular prophet. (I won't give it away - you need to buy the book!)

The task of moving from the text of Scripture to clear and faithful exposition is challenging. This series of excellent guides aims to help the Bible teacher to observe what is there in the text, and prepare to convey its significance to contemporary hearers. In this way these volumes often do more than the weightier technical commentaries. It is like having the guidance of an experienced coach in the wonderful work of rightly handling the word of truth.
