The study of Christian Doctrine can be challenging, it has often been the ground of dispute and confusion.

This wonderful book, so often quoted in the NT is crucial to our understanding of God’s salvation through the Messiah Jesus Christ. It’s in many ways the centre piece of the story of Israel in the Biblical story which finds it’s fulfilment in Jesus. The book’s message is summed up in the meaning of Isaiah’s name: YHWH is salvation! In it we learn so much about God, the sovereign King, Holy, just, yet gracious comforter. God is the living God, creator and compassionate redeemer of Israel and all who put their complete trust in Him.
