To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I’ve called myself an Old Testament junkie, but I had never really slowed to study Isaiah. I usually study without a book, but felt the discipline of structure would be helpful with 66 chapters. I mainly used the chapters of Isaiah as my pace, using the questions and bookmarking as I went. Because of this, it took me considerably longer to complete the study. My study was an individual pursuit, but I would enjoy the discussion questions if I ever have a opportunity to do it with a group. I will say after 40 plus years of “eating” God’s Word, the Passion Translation has been like a fountain for me in these hard days upon the earth. Truth and grace. I love how God has used Brian Simmons to relate the Living Word in fresh ways. Truly, God’s Word is a Fountain of Life. So thankful for the study guide to cross reference the OT with the NT, and for its probing application questions.
If you have never read The Passion Translation, you MUST ! It will change your life & heart forever. Isaiah 53 may be the most important book & chapter of the Bible ever written, even more so than Revelation or the Psalms. I say it's a book must-read and especially chapter 53!
