In this five-week course, we will take an in-depth look at the book of Isaiah. It will be challenging and stimulating for mind and spirit alike. On the one hand, its historical context, authorship, and canonicity of Isaiah is complex. But, on the other hand, God reveals Himself in these pages—His character, perspectives, personality, and plans—in ways that are often moving, startling, and exhilarating. It is little wonder that this ancient book is so often cited in secular culture. Join us for this engaging and uplifting study. This class is open to all. Students should have a basic familiarity with the Old Testament and should read Isaiah prior to attending class. Graduates of Old Testament Survey and Hermeneutics will be best prepared for this class.
