‘Look, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples.’
This was written by Isaiah over seven hundred years before the birth of Christ. It speaks of our unfulfilled desire for peace and the injustice and suffering of our age. This age was described by Isaiah as ‘all darkness and walking in deep shadows.’ Our search for light is blighted by hostility and lies. What happened when God himself gave his laws and a way to live to a people liberated from slavery? Did they enjoy peace and security? This book follows the biblical account and uncovers what really happened to them and the choice that today we all face.
