This Bible Month book for 2021 was the Book of Isaiah

Isaiah is a highly significant book that sits right at the centre of the Bible – not only in terms of where it appears, but in terms of its theological significance. It encapsulates the core strands of the Old Testament, summarising the story and struggles of Israel, and proclaiming God’s plans and promises for its people. It is also referenced again and again by the New Testament writers who are eager to demonstrate that Jesus and the early Church can be seen as the fulfilment of those plans and promises. In short, it is one of the best texts for helping us to trace a story-arc through the whole Bible; hear God’s heart for God’s people, appreciate what the writers of the New Testament are saying, and reflect on who Jesus is and who we are called to be as the Church today.

 Order your copy of the 30 Days with Isaiah booklet from the Preach website now. 

Because Isaiah is rather long, it might seem like a daunting book to explore. But, rest assured, this year’s menu of resources, training and learning opportunities is set to make it really accessible for everyone in your context, so no one finds themselves biting off more than they can manage...

To start with, we’re taking more of a thematic approach to the book. Each week we’re encouraging reflection on a different fundamental theme of the book.

Week 1: Tough Love
Week 2: A Light to the World
Week 3: The Faithful Servant
Week 4: A New World
