Current World Events in Isaiah’s Prophetic Timeline

Years ago, Dr. Avraham Gileadi’s “Analytical Commentary on the Book of Isaiah” really opened my eyes to understanding the writings and prophecies of Isaiah. He has published numerous books and other content to continue teaching the critical words of this prophet, including tying themes together relevant to our spiritual growth, and current world events.
