Introduction to Isaiah: Who and Why?
“Isaiah was the principal Old Testament prophet who prophesied of the coming of the Messiah”
(James E. Faust, “The Keystone of Our Religion”, Ensign and Liahona, Jan. 2004, 5).
Bruce R. McConkie
“If, as many suppose, Isaiah ranks with the most difficult of the prophets to understand, his words are also among the most important for us to know and ponder. . . .His prophetic words can and should shine brightly in the heart of every member of the Church.”
“It just may be that my salvation (and yours also!) does in fact depend upon our ability to understand the writings of Isaiah as fully and truly as Nephi understood them”
