... a much needed antidote to man-centredness and truimphalism; provided in the best possible way- looking at Jesus the servant
"This is a study of the ‘servant songs' from Isaiah showing their relationship to Jesus. There are 13 chapters in all, the last 6 of which deal with the last ‘song'. In each chapter of the book Stuart Sacks moves through an Isaiah passage and the related passages from the gospels, letters, psalms and other OT writings showing, with a Jewish understanding, how the messianic theme runs through them all.
The reader is led gently along to see how the eternal love of God portrayed by Isaiah in the servant songs. They are seen as part of the seamless history of God's plan for the salvation of man and the timeless nature of his promises. This is a good book for quiet personal guidance and reflection."

"The author's ability to move fluidly between the promises and prophecies of Isaiah and their New Testament fulfilment makes this an enlightening and practical book. Clearly Stuart Sacks is thrilled to introduce to us his Messiah, and to encourage us all, Jew and Gentile alike, to know him..."
