Isaiah: Here I am imagines the life of the prophet Isaiah hinted at in the vision he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah. He is called to preach repentance and hope to a people of unclean lips, who do not understand or perceive God’s message of salvation with the support of his family, disciples, and fellow prophets Jonah, Micah, and Hosea.

Five Star Review on Amazon By James Crews
I found reading and understanding the book of “Isaiah” in various versions of the Bible difficult to interpret and hard to understand. I found B.G. Brainard’s novels to be captivating. She interweaves Bible history and prophecy with her research and analysis of other biblical scholars, in producing novels that Christians or Non-Christians would enjoy reading.
In her novel “Isaiah” she brings to life the Prophet Isaiah: his possible interactions with his wife and family, kings, scribes, people of that time period, temple priests and other Prophets. Yahweh speaking through the prophet Isaiah foretells the coming of a man named Cyrus, to aid the Jewish people in rebuilding their nation. Prophet Isaiah and the people of his time period thought through Cyrus: the city of Jerusalem would be rebuilt and remnants of Jewish people returned to the city. For insight into Cyrus, I recommend reading the author’s book (“ESTHERS SONG”). For insight into rebuilding of Jerusalem, I recommend the author’s book “(JERUSALEM BOUND”). Of great interest to me was Yahweh speaking through the Prophet Isaiah: foretelling the coming of Jesus and his eventual return with the New Jerusalem. For insight into this, I recommend reading in the Bible “REVELATION 21:22.” I did not go into a lot of detail for the author does that – so read her novels, the Bible and enjoy.
About the Author
Dr. B. G. Brainard’s passion as an historical fiction author is to bring the Hebrew Scriptures to life one book at a time through meticulous ancient Near East research and numerous excursions to the Middle East. Her first book, Esther’s Song, presents a realistic account of Esther; the Jewish queen immortalized in the Bible book bearing her name. The second book, Babylon: Center of the World, is the story of the biblical wise man Daniel’s captivity under the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar. The third book in the GRACE IN EXILE TRILOGY is Jerusalem Bound!, which covers the return of the priest-scribe Ezra to Jerusalem and revival of the law of Moses, Nehemiah, cupbearer to the Persian king Artaxerxes, fulfilling his mission to rebuild the Jerusalem wall, along with the ministries of the so-called minor prophets Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi.
She lives in Oregon with her husband, five hundred orchids, and a little red barn.
