"Isaiah in the Book of Mormon", Edited by Parry, Donald W., and Welch, John W. Provo, UT: Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies, 1998.


The essays in this book, written by some of the finest LDS scholars, take a variety of approaches to help readers make the most of the Isaiah passages in the Book of Mormon. These scholars use the prophets of the Book of Mormon as knowledgeable guides, examining how and why those ancient writers used and interpreted Isaiah in order to clarify for modern readers what the Isaiah sections in the Book of Mormon are all about.
