Understanding the Books of the Bible –ISAIAH 
by Dr. Christopher R. Smith

This Understanding the Books of the Bible study guide on Isaiah reminds us that Isaiah delivers a message of hope because he reminds the Israelites that God has called them his own people and therefore he will be tender and compassionate towards those he loves. God has a plan not just for their redemption but for the redemption of the whole of his broken creation.

Isaiah is a challenging book, both for its literary form and for the message it delivers. This guide will help you make sense of Isaiah’s many parts so that we can understand the scope of Isaiah’s message and its importance in the overall story of God’s work. And, for a people facing present-day crises-whether in our own lives or in the lives of our churches, nation or world–these studies will point us to the God who is still faithfully, compassionately speaking and redeeming the creation and people he loves.

The 26-lesson format is ideally presented for group or individual studies and is adaptable to any study situation. It will evoke deep conversations about all facets of Isaiah. It will bring personal growth and life change through a new level of understanding and engaging God’s word.

The Understanding the Bible the Books of the Bible series moves groups away from a typical Bible study format into a new approach to experiencing the Bible together. Instead of following artificial chapter and verse divisions, these study guides lead groups through whole books following their natural outlines and flow. They pose engaging questions for discussion with personal implications all along the way, leading to a community Bible experience.
