Item description for A Study Commentary on Isaiah, Volume 1: Chapters 1-39 (Ep Study Commentary) by John MacKay...
Overview There were no investigative journalists in the ancient world to bring to the attention of the public matters which the rich and powerful wished to keep hidden. But to a certain extent their role was fulfilled in ancient Israel by the prophets of Yahweh, amongst whom was numbered Isaiah. He exposed the follies of the rich, oppression in society, commented on the inadequacies of foreign alliances, and resolutely confronted wayward kings. The role of a prophet, however, differed in many key respects from that of a journalist. For one thing, the prophet was called and commissioned by God for the role that he had to play. A true prophet did not opt for this as a career. It was divinely assigned to him.

More About John MacKay
This is the first novel from STV journalist and newsreader John MacKay -- John presents Scotland Today (6-6.30pm Mon-Fri on STV) -- and forms the first part in a trilogy. Born in Glasgow in 1965, he has drawn on the oral traditions of his Hebridean background to write The Road Dance -- a novel that sears itself onto the reader's mind, a novel you can't not respond to.
