Gregorio Billikopf took his life-long interest in the Book of Isaiah and combined that with his 25-year research project to publish Isaiah Testifies of Christ.  Billikopf, whose native language is Spanish, uses English beautifully as he unfolds Isaiah for everyday church members. In PDF format, the 1000-page book offers insights from both Latter-day Saint and Jewish perspectives.

Interestingly, he was reared in a Catholic home in Chile. His maternal grandparents are from Chile, and he has Jewish paternal grandparents. His grandfather was a Lithuanian Jew and his grandmother a German Jew.  In his late teens, he joined the LDS Church after reading the Book of Mormon, which actually reintroduced him to his Jewish roots and his discovery of Isaiah.

He writes, “While the writings of Isaiah and the Prophets have always held a special appeal for me, it was…while reading in the Book of Mormon that the words of our Savior sank deep into my heart: ‘And now, behold, I say unto you, that ye ought to search these things. Yeah, a commandment I give unto you that ye search these things diligently; for great are the words of Isaiah’ (3 Nephi 23:1).”

Recently one of his readers, Susan Wyman posted about his work:

“This is an incredible resource! Well worth the time to read. We can scroll mindless Facebook drivel or we can use the time to learn some additional knowledge about our destiny as part of the House of Israel. I’m very grateful to learn of this source.”

Personally, I find myself studying his book every time I read Isaiah just to get the Jewish point of view he uniquely offers.

I am a retiree from Scouting. There I blogged for VoiceOfScouting.org, a site with more than 250,000 readers. During 42 years in the workplace, I've had many years senior level management with the BSA, professional associations, and high tech user groups. My background includes capital fundraising; outdoor adventure program development; property and construction management; event/conference planning; risk management and safety; lobbying federal, state and local government agencies; public relations; strategic planning; member advocacy and staff/volunteer training. Along the way, I have also taught Gospel Doctrine Classes and been both the ward and stake Sunday School President. In these settings, I have seen teachers and class members minimize Isaiah, a book Christ has commanded us to "search diligently." (3 Ne 23:1) With that in mind, I will do my best to explore and post my discoveries about the book of Isaiah. I am not a Bible scholar; like you, I read Isaiah in the Old Testament cycle of study in LDS Gospel Doctrine Classes and again in the Book of Mormon Cycle, so this is a whole new scripture adventure for me.
