A Reader’s Review:
“This is the first devotional I will read to the end. With most devotionals, the author’s comments take precedence and not the text. After a while, I find the devotional irrelevant for the day and eventually drop it off from my reading list. But this devotional – Isaiah by the Day – is not the same. The text takes pre-eminence and the author skillfully brings out the beauty of Isaiah from his vast knowledge. Isaiah is so relevant for today. In a world filled with chaos, uncertainty, doom and gloom. I find hope in every page. Like me, I believe you will wonder how can a book written thousands of years ago still speaks with such relevance. It is remarkable and amazing.
In the past, I have been quite frustrated with Isaiah because I can’t seem to see the flow of it. I understand passages but not the flow. After reading this book, I am hooked on Isaiah and will be reading Isaiah more than once this year. Where I once saw a God of anger and judgment as the main theme, I now see a loving God of Grace and mercy throughout the book — like a golden thread across the blackness of sin and the consequences thereof. Christ fills the pages of Isaiah.”
