Big book, but it goes into a lot of detail.
Linda C. Lang
I have used Understanding Isaiah as a reference book now for the past six months and I love how it teaches the wonderful truths of the love that Jesus has for all.

Highly recommended, even for those well versed in the Book of Isaiah.

The only way a person can truly understand Isaiah is through the inspiration of the Holy Ghost. Donald Parry, however, does a good job of getting the reader pointed in the right direction to better understand the style of writing used by the Prophet Isaiah. I have noted at times his explanation of some passages differs from that of say Monte Nyman or John Bytheway. It just shows that none of them truly understand Isaiah and that we must go to the Holy Ghost for that real answer. In general he does a good job and I have a better understanding of the words of Isaiah than I would without his book. If you want to better understand Isaiah, it should be in your library.

I have used Understanding Isaiah as a reference book now for the past six months and I love how it teaches the wonderful truths of the love that Jesus has for all. I read through the Bible passages and try to understand, but so many times there are refernces to the way of life of the Jews that I am not famliar with and Donald Perry beautifully explains the true meaning often going with a phrase by phrase dissection of each verse. One of the best qualities of Understanding Isaiah is placing the words of Isaiah in the original poetic form. That alone reveals a beauty within the words of the great prophet. Each explanation then uncovers the facets of a glorious gem just waiting to be understood by all who will just look to be more fully persuaded to believe in their Redeemer as another great prophet said.

I've read the Book of Mormon several times, but I have only read the 'Compare Isaiah' once, making an oath never to bother with them again. However, Nephi had testified many times his love for the words of Isaiah. How can Nephi say that these words are so wonderful when all I could find was confusion?
A Sunday School student had suggested this book to me and after resisting for many years I took the plunge and bought this book. I decided that I would give Isaiah one more shot.
And I am soooooo glad that I did. First of all, Nephi was right, these are wonderful words. You learn about the mission of Christ, what he has planned for the restored church and the children of Israel. You learn what certain words mean and what reference Isaiah was trying to make. I sat down and delved through this book cover to cover. I now love and have a good understanding of the words of Isaiah.
I just finished reading 2nd Nephi the other day... the entire book this time. I was actually looking FORWARD to getting to the compare Isaiah verses. I loved it!!! Also, I have found that reading other books of the Old Testament now makes a lot more sense and has more meaning for me. This book will remain in my library for years to come.
Highly recommended, even for those well versed in the Book of Isaiah. It has really added a lot of meaning to my scripture reading and has made me love the Old Testament and the Book of Mormon more because of what was written here.

Format: Hardcover
This is an outstanding effort by the Parrys and Tina Peterson giving LDS (and other) students of the scriptures an in-depth view of this most wonderful book of the Old Testament. Eash chapter is outlined and treated in detail. I don't know how this book could be any better! It has been very meaningful to me from both spiritual intellectual viewpoints.

I have been struggling with Isaiah's words for a long time. This book just opens my eyes and helps me understand not only the gospel messages which it contains, but also helps me to be familiar with the Isaiah's time and culture. I strongly recommend this book for everyone who wants to have a better understanding of Old Testament and Book of Mormon as well.

The book was in immaculate condition as advertised and I have not been able to put it down. In my religion I was instructed to read and study Isaiah by the Savior, himself, in 3rd Neiphi and this book has opened up the whole Book of Isaiah and delivered his message in an understandable way that relates to what the message was that he, Isaiah, received from the Lord.
