Inter-Varsity Press Isaiah: Trusting God in Troubled Times, Revised, LifeGuide Scripture Studies

Sometimes we look at our lives or our world and wonder what good could possibly come out of it. That's exactly what we find in the book of isaiah. Here you'll see how the prophet raises a cry for revival in the midst of a rotting society. And you'll find comfort for your own troubled times. This revised LifeGuide Bible Study features additional questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, together with expanded leader's notes and a "Now or Later" section in each study. Includes 22 studies for individuals or groups.

Our Bible study group had never tried a LifeGuide study before, but very much enjoyed the series until the seventh lesson. From there, it took a very strong enviornmental position. We felt there was a definate agenda behind the lesson and that it read more into the Scriptures than what was actually there. The prayer at the close of the lesson actually stated that we should, "Pray for environmental scientists, that we will see more clearly the meaning of our human covenant with the earth." Isaiah 24 talks about the end times, Christ's return, and how HE will destroy the earth. We did not see how it had ANYTHING to do us making a "covenant with the earth." We believe the teaching is misguided and returned ours. Buyers beware.

I am studying Isaiah;Trusting God in Troubled Times with a group of twenty -five women and we have found that this prophetic writing has been very relevant to the times we are living in. It has encouraged us to know that God is in control regardless of how things may appear and that he is always faithful to us even when we are not faithful to him. We have also found that studying the Old Testament has illuminated the New Testament studies that we have already done.The format of the LifeGuide studies works well for the size of our group. The questions are clearly stated and easy to understand. I have no hesitation in recommending this material to other groups.

We haven't started the women's bible study yet, but from reviewing the material, I feel that we will have an inspired series of meetings as we read through the book of Isaiah.

The book of Isaiah has always been to me one of the greatest books of the Bible. It's content is rich in prophecy guided towards Jesus birth and sacrifice. This book helps me with the guidance of the Holy Spirit understand God's message and teach it efficiently.
