In a world of flippant convictions and a declining sense of God's awe and wonder, it is Isaiah's conviction that the church needs to remember the consequences of God's holy character and live accordingly if she is to experience blessing and revival. It is not God's faithfulness, but ours, which is in question. God Delivers: Isaiah Simply Explained is a probing and accessible commentary on this important book.

“God rebukes the despondent for wrong thoughts about him and wrong thoughts about ourselves.” (Page 258)

“For Isaiah the facts were simple: God is in control, he is one to be reckoned with, he is the only God there is.” (Page 61)

“Wrong thoughts of God twist our perspective on life. Everything gets out of shape and we do great harm to the Lord’s cause. Isaiah has sought in this section of his prophecy to lift up our eyes towards heaven and behold God in all his glory. If things are not working out as we would like, it is precisely because what life is all about is not what we like, but what God intends for us. Waiting on God—his ways, his thoughts, his timing—this is the key to spiritual growth and maturity.” (Page 264)

“‘The more we know of God,’ Gresham Machen once said, ‘the more unreservedly we will trust him; the greater our progress in theology, the simpler and more childlike will be our faith.’ Isaiah would agree with him.” (Page 62)

“Forgiveness is something we must secure before we die if we are to make sure of heaven. The purpose of Isaiah 6 is, partly, to inform us that the prophet was a forgiven man.” (Page 59)

This commentary is what we would expect from Derek Thomas. It reflects his sound theology, his clarity of thought, his gifts as a preacher, and his keen spiritual insight. It is warmly commended, not only to preachers, but to all who love a challenging presentation of God's Word.
