The Prophet Isaiah
from the Old Testament
(Story on the back
of the card)
When Uzziah, the ruler of Judah, died, Isaiah said, "I saw
the Lord sitting on a high and lofty throne; and the train of his
robe filled the temple. Guardian angels stood above him. Each had
six wings, one pair to cover the face, another to cover the feet,
and another with which to fly. And they cried out:
Holy, holy, holy, is Jehovah of hosts,
The whole earth is full of his glory.
The foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of those
who called, and the temple was filled with smoke. Then I said: 'Woe
is me! I am ruined; for I am a man with unclean lips, and I live
among a people with unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King,
Jehovah of hosts!' But one of the guardian angels flew to me with
a hot coal in his hand and with it he touched my mouth and said:
'See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your
Whom shall I send,
And who will go for us?
and I said, "Here am I, send me."
W. L. Taylor 1922

Adult and children's books inspired by the story of Prophet Isaiah
• Isaiah (Old Testament Library)
by Brevard S. Childs.
• The Book of Isaiah, Chapters 1-39 (New Intl Commentary on the Old Testament) by John Oswalt.
• The Book of Isaiah: Chapters 40-66 (New International Commentary on the Old Testament) by John Oswalt.
• The Prophecy of Isaiah: An Introduction & Commentary by J.A. Motyer.
Recipient of a Christianity Today 1994 Critics Choice Award!Among Old Testament prophetic books no other equals Isaiah's brilliance of style and metaphor, its arresting vision of the Holy One of Israel and its kaleidoscopic vision of God's future restoration of Israel and the world. Now, after over three decades of studying and teaching Isaiah, Alec Motyer presents a wealth of commentary and perspective on this book. His emphasis is on the grammatical, historical, structural, literary and theological dimensions of the text. Though based on the Hebrew text, his exposition easily accomodates readers without a working knowledge of biblical Hebrew. And he writes with an interest in Isaiah's meaning for Christians today.Along the historical timeline on which the Isaianic prophecies are strung, Motyer finds three central and recurring themes: the messianic hope, the motif of the city and the theology of the Holy One of Israel. Moreover, he argues, the Isaianic literature is organized around three messianic portraits: the King (Isaiah 1-37), the Servant (Isaiah 38-55) and the Anointed Conqueror (Isaiah 56-66).Preachers, teachers and serious Bible students of all types will find this commentary a wise, winsome and welcome guide to the prophecy of Isaiah. It may easily be the best one-volume evangelical commentary on Isaiah available today.
• Isaiah (Lifechange Series) by Navigator Press.
LIFECHANGE Bible studies allow the Bible to speak for itself. You'll see for yourself what it says-not what someone else thinks it says-and develop the skills and desire to dig even deeper into God's Word.
• Isaiah (Westminster Bible Companion) (Volume 1, Chapters 1-39) by Walter Brueggemann.
In Bruggemann's commentary Isaiah saw a time of darkness and despair, where doom was inevitable and the eyes of the people of Israel, especially the religious and political leaders of Judah, were blind. This was a time when the people called by God, redeemed by God, actively rejected God. Death and destruction were to follow. Jerusalem would fall. The temple would be leveled in 587 B.C.E. Yet for all of this Isaiah did not leave the people without hope (Isaiah 40-66); for he saw a time when promise would follow judgement. He prophecies of a time for the people of God when peace, spiritual prosperity and a new beginning would come.
• The Isaiah Effect: Decoding the Lost Science of Prayer and Prophecy by Gregg Braden.
The Isaiah Effect: Decoding the Lost Science of Prayer and Prophesy draws on new discoveries in quantum physics, as well as a variety of spiritual traditions and religious documents--including Tibetan, Mayan, and Hopi prophecies; Nostradamus; and the Dead Sea Scrolls. From these sources, author Gregg Braden believes that he has recovered "a lost science with the power to bring a lasting end to all war, disease, and suffering; initiate an unprecedented era of peace and cooperation between governments and nations; render destructive patterns of weather harmless; bring lasting healing to our bodies; and redefine ancient prophecies of devastation and catastrophic loss of life." Mass prayer is the technique that will allow all of these goals to be achieved, Braden says: "the choice of many people, focused in a specific manner, has a direct and measurable effect on our quality of life." The book includes careful readings of ancient texts, prophetic pronouncements, and mini-travelogues (Braden leads groups to visit sacred sites around the world), and its arguments may strike some readers as far-fetched. But Braden's basic idea--that hope can change the world in concrete ways--is a very good one.
• The New Interpreter's Bible : Isaiah - Ezekiel (Volume 6) by David L. Peterson, Gene M. Tucker and Christopher R. Seitz.
The sixth volume of the New Interpreter's Bible is the volume that introduces the Prophetic tradition in the Hebrew Scriptures. After an introductory essay concerning Prophetic Literature, the volume continues with the books of the major prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, and Ezekiel, as well as the apocrypal books of Baruch and the Letter of Jeremiah.
• The Fifth Gospel: Isaiah in the History of Christianity by John F.A. Sawyer.
Sawyer's new book is unusually important for at least two reasons. In the first place Sawyer presents a fascinating survey of the book of Isaiah's contribution to Christian history....At the same time, Sawyer pushes the boundaries of traditional biblical studies by pursuing Isaiah in terms not of its original meanings, but of its influence as Christian literature....one can easily lose oneself in the sheer volume of evidence Sawyer introduces. In this case, losing oneself can be a joy due to the richness of Sawyer's sources and the artful way he weaves them together.
• I Saw the Lord: A Wake-Up Call for Your Heart by Anne Graham Lotz.
