Item description for Conversations with Scripture: 2 Isaiah (Conversations with Scripture) by Stephen L. Cook...
Overview Engages readers with the astonishing beauty and depth of Second Isaiah and its relevance today Newest entry in the only Bible study series written from a uniquely Anglican perspective For use by adult formation programs in parish group settings and by individuals Study and reflection questions included Beautifully designed interior with margin glosses, pull quotes, boxes
The God of Second Isaiah, the Holy One of Israel, is increasingly foreign to modern Anglicans, who are often uncomfortable with the uncanny, fiery side of God. Unfortunately, this may leave Anglicans frustrated both with God s non-rational ways and with morality-centered Christianity.
The new research behind this book reveals Second Isaiah as priestly temple literature, expert at the Holy and its coming dawn on earth. Second Isaiah highlights priestly themes and quotes the temple texts to help readers approach that which is utterly mysterious. To study this material is to rediscover the overwhelming, absolute worth of God. "

Accessible, authoritative, and a joy to read Jul 21, 2009
Dr. Cook opens Isaiah to his readers in a way that is not only grounded in excellent scholarship, but also spiritually rich. Dr. Cook's style is not stuffy in the way some academic writings can be, not at all! While being informative about the context, content, and Christian interpretations of Isaiah, this book opens the poetry of Isaiah in a genuinely reverent, even loving way. Isaiah is thus woven into the very fabric of Christianity, enlivening our understanding of both the Bible and of Jesus as well. This book is a joy to read. I've savored every page. Recommended for anyone, from academics to the casually interested reader.
