Visualizing Isaiah is a full- color book filled with beautiful photographs, maps, and charts that illuminate the words of the prophet Isaiah. Author Donald W. Parry, an expert on Isaiah and Old Testament texts, complements the book's gorgeous graphic elements with insight into Isaiah's world.
The book of Isaiah is filled with rich symbolism. Isaiah drew on life around him to illustrate with words the mission of Jesus Christ, the restoration of the gospel, the rewards of the righteous, the fate of the wicked, and prophecies for both modern and ancient times. Readers better grasp this prophet's writings by understanding and visualizing the symbols he used.
The book's pictures capture familiar phrases: a woman weaves scarlet wool, and eagle mounts up and soars through the sky, a tender plant grows out of dry ground. These well known passages are infused with life through stunning images and enlightening commentary.
Readers both young and old will enjoy browsing through the colorful pages of pictures and text. And teachers will appreciate photographs, charts, and explanations that shed light on the sometimes complex, always powerful words of Isaiah. Donald W. Parry, 2001, 152 pp., Hard Cover, FARMS.
