We know that Isaiah is important, but probably couldn’t say why, and almost certainly don’t understand it! This first of five lessons on Isaiah introduces the book. This portion of the episode covers:

  • The value of Isaiah
  • Isaiah as a testimony of Christ
  • Devotional and historical approaches to the scriptures
  • Isaiah, the KJV, and the Book of Mormon
  • Review of the reading and personal application
