Harmonizing Isaiah

Combining Ancient Scriptures

The discovery of The Great Isaiah Scroll among the Dead Sea Scrolls shed new light on the traditional text of Isaiah. In Harmonizing Isaiah, Dead Sea Scrolls scholar Donald W. Parry provides his translation of the Isaiah Scroll combined with readings of other versions of Isaiah preserved in the Masoretic Text, the Book of Mormon, and the Joseph Smith Translation. With the Isaiah passages rendered in modern English and formatted into parallel lines of poetry, Harmonizing Isaiah is a helpful resource for teachers and students of the book of Isaiah.
