The book of Isaiah is best known for its many Messianic prophecies. But the aim of this ancient prophet is to bring us face-to-face with the greatness of God. Isaiah shows us God's rightful claim on planet earth and his sovereign plan for the unfolding of human history. Not only does he predict the coming of the Suffering Servant, Isaiah also describes how God uses the failures of his chosen people to accomplish his purposes and to bring glory to himself. Isaiah invites us to gaze upon the holiness of God and to be amazed at what we see.
