I highly recommend this book. It is incredibly helpful in understanding Isaiah. The author was trained in Jerusalem in Hebrew schools before he became LDS. He has a very unique perspective because of his education. His book shows how the structure of Isaiah is like a ladder that shows you how to ascend toward God or descend toward Satan.

There are a few times in the Book of Mormon where we are told to study Isaiah. Nephi was trying to tell us about what would happen before Christ came in the last

I am a huge fan of this book. I just picked it up to read for the second time. I am again awestruck by how illuminating this book is about the Book of Isaiah. I find the book very motivating.

Got this for Christmas from Pete. I'd looked over Gileadi's writings before but this was a perfect match for my current comprehension. I've long and consistently tried to study Isaiah because of the recommendation and quotations from almost every prophet since, including Christ himself, but found it difficult.

This book was not written as I had anticipated. Rather than following Isaiah from chapter to chapter, it talked about the symbolism used to convey an overarching theme. I didn't feel it was very revealing or exciting but by the time I reached the end of the book, I was very clear on the message of the book. Now as I read Isaiah on my own, I can see some of the message. Interesting!!!

This is a book to be read more than once. Each time I read it, I see new things, new light and understanding. It's a great book to understand the lows in your life. And how those humiliating difficult times can lead to a higher level. Those descents in life are tough to bear.

Very interesting insight. The four dimensional approach to understanding Isaiah and other biblical writings has helped greatly.

I highly recommend this book. I found it fascinating and a new overlook of Isaiah and his teachings about covenants, God's purposes, and our path back to God.

Way too repetitive. There were some interesting insights but not enough - nor was it written in an analytical style - that would cause me to want to read any of his other books.

I'm only a couple of chapters in, but it is already increasing my understanding of this wonderful prophet. More later...
