Looking at chapters 40-55 in the book of Isaiah, F. B. Meyer relates the Old Testament prophecies to their fulfillment found in the New Testament. He presents a striking portrait of our Lord as He was revealed and through the prophet Isaiah during the time of the exodus from Babylon.
Frederick Brotherton Meyer (18471929) was a contemporary and friend of D.L. Moody. He was a greatly loved Baptist pastor and evangelist in England whose pastorates included Victoria Road Church and Melbourne Hall in Leicester and Regents Park Chapel and Christ Church in London. Born in London and raised in a Christian home, he attended Brighton College and graduated from the University of London in 1869. He studied theology at Regents Park College. Meyer was involved in ministry and inner-city mission work on both sides of the Atlantic. He is said to have brought about the closing of hundreds of saloons and brothels. He was also a regular preacher at the Keswick Convention. Meyer wrote over 40 books, including Christian biographies and devotional commentaries on the Bible, many of which remain in print today. Besides pastoring, writing, social work and convention speaking, Meyer made evangelistic tours to South Africa, Asia, the United States and Canada. He had great influence upon such giants of the faith as J. Wilbur Chapman and Charles H. Spurgeon. It was Spurgeon who said, Meyer preaches as a man who has seen God face to face.
