Isaiah, Volume 1

Front Cover
Westminster John Knox Press, Jan 1, 1984 - Biography & Autobiography - 284 pages

This prophetic Old Testament book begins by telling the reader that it is the "vision" of Isaiah. The use of the word "vision," John F. A. Sawyer explains, conveys to the reader that regardless of when the prophet lived, "his 'words' go beyond the immediate historical circumstances of his day." Sawyer argues that we as modern readers also are being addressed.

Carrying forward brilliantly the pattern established by Barclay's New Testament series, the Daily Study Bible has been extended to cover the entire Old Testament as well. Invaluable for individual devotional study, for group discussion, and for classroom use, the Daily Study Bible provides a useful, reliable, and eminently readable way to discover what the Scriptures were saying then and what God is saying today.
