What is it about the writings of Isaiah that causes many of us to be overcome by feelings of dread and trepidation? With this new book, no student of the Bible or Book of Mormon has need to fear. In Understanding Isaiah, the authors break down the otherwise formidable words of Isaiah into small bites that can be absorbed, pondered, and comprehended. Unlike other works on Isaiah, this book goes beyond commentary and actually includes the verses of text comprising not only the King James Version of the Bible but also the Joseph Smith Translation and the Book of Mormon, presenting the most correct translation available today. The text is presented in the same couplet format as it was likely originally written. The authors examine each unit of thought individually, likening it to our modern-day life and presenting definitions and explanations of meaning based on thorough study of the Hebrew language. The result is a comprehensive, accessible reference work that imparts readers an unprecedented understanding of Isaiah. (6' x 9', 720 pages)

Review for the Kindle edition.

The majority of the footnotes and table of contents link NOT to their correct place. For example: Chapter 34 takes you to 35(verified the error three times). All of the footnote links takes you to stange places, often to the first few pages of the book, or just erroneous random other footnotes that don't correlate with the chapter viewed.

All in all: bug ridden and error filled.

The content itself is useful, though I could do more with the author referencing doctrine and quotes to support his posits, rather than "it is clear Isaiah meant [insert here]...."

Let the text speak for itself, and then qualify that the commentary supports this or that theory within doctrinal speculation (and clarify when it. IS specification, otherwise quote a prophetic source).

If you have a posit you believe was the original intent, clarify that it's your posit, not Isaiah's, as this text conflates them. We are not Pharisees here doing Torah commentaries, we can do better.

What I loved: the restructuring of the text to fit as close (as is possible) to the original poetic styling within a translation framework. Part of the reason Isaiah is so difficult to read is that it functions very VERY poorly in a chapter and verse format. Restyling the poetry and giving context and history makes it not only understandable but fascinating.

Only the opinion driven commentary bogs down the book.

The text itself deserves 3.5+ stars for the great restructure of Isaiah and the history. The Kindle edition gets 1 star for being unreadable and incredibly frustrating.

I decided to be nice and give it 2 stars overall.

Do yourself a favor, get the hard copy to study from, as there's some great stuff here. I had to refund my purchase it was so badly done on Kindle edition unfortunately.

Hopefully (but doubtfully) they fix the kindle edition of the book. I'd repurchase it once the glaring readability errors are resolved.

Without historical and cultural context Isaiah can be confusing. But then again, so can understanding reality old commentaries. This was a good bridge/tool in understanding old commentaries as well as Isaiah. I wouldn’t rely on it solely, though.

There was obviously an incredible amount of research involved in this book. The authors did an amazing job of interpreting Isaiah.

Very good, easy to read, easy to compare with Isaiah in the Old Testament, provides greater insight to his writings, prophecies, and the nature of the Jewish culture and politics of 700-600 b.c.
