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.

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.
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.
North India desperately needs men and women who will preach and teach the Bible faithfully and PT's Teaching series is of great value in encouraging them to do just that.
The need of the hour is Bible knowledge. When knowledge fails, faith fails, and we are shaped instead by cultural forces alien to God. This teaching series, written by skilled and trustworthy students of God's word, helps us to understand the Bible, believe it and obey it. I commend it to all Bible readers, but especially those whose task it is to teach the inspired word of God.
The Teaching series is a great resource for Bible study leaders and pastors, indeed for any Christian who wants to understand their Bible better.
"One of the great strengths and advantages of a help like this for preachers and Bible study leaders is that it enables us to get a handle on the big picture of how Isaiah fits together before we dive into all the wonderful details, and to see how each part contributes to the whole. David Jackman is a master at never losing the plot."

WoodcarverNewberry, SCAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent resource, but more "preacher" orientedJanuary 12, 2011WoodcarverNewberry, SCAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4The book is an excellent resource on Isaiah. The book was purchased with the intent to use it for presenting a Bible study. While it does lend itself to developing a Bible study, it is oriented more toward the "preacher" developing sermons than toward conducting a Bible study. I do like the fact that at the end of most chapters, it provides a short Bible study outline. I do realize that preparing a sermon is akin to presenting a Bible study, but not having received any theological training, the approach is a little different from what I anticipated. However, I am very pleased with the book.
