As a man who loves the Word of God, and is passionate about the Old Testament, Alec Motyer presents these daily devotionals from Isaiah birthed from a lifetime of study. For him, daily devotion is not a mere duty but a real desire to be transformed by the challenging Word of God as given to the prophet Isaiah. These devotionals reassure us that the Lord can restore what sin has robbed us of. Day by day you will read freshly translated passages from Isaiah and have an opportunity to explore the passage further through the author’s notes and devotional comments. Take time to acquaint yourself with these passages from God’s word and treasure them in your heart and life.
Dr. Motyer invites readers to share in his passion for the book of Isaiah, see his personal invitation from the Author’s Preface below:
Welcome to Isaiah! I send you this invitation as one who loves everything about him-the way he writes, his mastery of words, the rhythmic beauty of his Hebrew and, above all, the magnificent sweep of his messianic vision, taking in the glory of Jesus as God and King, the wonder and fullness of the salvation he accomplished, and the shining hope of his coming again. I want to share all this with you so that you may become as indebted to Isaiah as I feel myself to be. His book is as much the crown of the Old Testament as the Epistle to the Hebrews is of the New Testament-and for the same reason. Isaiah saw the coming King, Saviour and Conqueror; Hebrews knew him as Jesus. May the Lord God bless you richly as you read this tremendous portion of his word.
