Understanding Idioms

This has many facinating helps and insights into the scriptural language that so many find difficult. A very good read.

Understanding Isaiah

One person found this helpful. I overlooked the fact that this is a book for Latter Day Saints Mormon which is not what I was looking for. I needed books on what idioms meant or in fact, still mean from years ago in the Palestine area. I did find another book that was helpful by Lamsa.

  • Unlocking the Idioms: An LDS Perspective on Understanding Scriptural Idioms by George M. Peacock.

However, this book although the fault is mine for not researching more carefully was not for my benefit. Idioms are as real in holy scripture as are prophecies and parables. Like a cultural shorthand, they describe without using lengthy explanation. Idioms and idiomatic language are words and phrases that express more than the actual words themselves. They paint mental or emotional images and bring intensity to events and feelings described in holy writ. Idioms may also be meaningless and misleading if the reader has no experience with the culture and language from which they originate.

Both mistranslation and cultural differences contribute to the misunderstanding of scriptural idioms.

Understanding Isaiah

In unlocking the idioms, George M. Peacock explains how to identify idioms, what they are, and how learning their meanings adds to your comprehension of the scriptures. Unlocking the idioms brings you new levels of insight, understanding, and knowledge as you feast upon the words of the Lord. I found this work to have many insightful clues to further deepen my understanding of holy scripture. See all 4 reviews.

It is the perfect resource with great documentation and insights that decider the parts of Isaiah I cannot understand without guidance.

This is a great resource for a book that is tricky to understand. It is evident that the authors did extensive research and drew from their backgrounds in areas like LDS gospel doctrine and Biblical Hebrew. The book is very organized and easy to follow. One thing I especially like is how each chapter starts with an explanation on how it can apply to us today.

Unlocking The Idioms LDS Perspective On Scriptural I Peacock

I think there is something here for both scholars and average members. This is a significant study on Isaiah--very well researched. I appreciate the parallelisms, the comments and insights, and the verse by verse study. Every page was helpful and now when I have questions about Isaiah, I turn to this work. While the book has some valuable insights on it there are too many cases where it seems, the authors only half researched a subject resulting in making it more difficult to gain a proper understanding of the message Isaiah is trying to share.

My Account

In the print version of the book, the authors do an extensive job of comparing parallelisms and use different fonts like italics and underlining to highlight these words. In the ebook, there aren't any of these highlights. Not much point in getting the ebook. I thoroughly recommend this book to everyone. The three authors of this book have done a tremendous job putting together, in one volume, a tour de force of faith promoting scholarship. The book contains the text of Isaiah with linguistical emmendations where necessary Dr.

The reader is met with Hebrew insights, doctrinal teaching from restoration scripture, and application teachings.
