182: The Words of Isaiah (BoM Gospel Doctrine Lesson 9)

March 4, 2016

Engaging Gospel Doctrine

“My Soul Delighteth in the Words of Isaiah”


Nephi may delight in the words of Isaiah, but the rest of us have a hard time. This episode models how to engage with scripture in general and the Isaiah chapters specifically–devotionally, textually, and historically. The discussion is fantastic and will give you respect for these chapters if not win you over.

Jenny and Michael join the class.
