Isaiah wrestles with the realities of people who are not convicted by the truth but actually hardened by it and a God whose actions sometimes seem unintelligible, or, even worse, who appears to be absent.
Yet Isaiah penetrates beyond these experiences to see a greater reality.
Isaiah portrays God’s rule over history and his capacity to take the worst of human actions and use them for good. He declares the truth that even in the darkest hours, the Holy One of Israel is infinitely trustworthy.
