What in the World is Happening?

The upheaval of the postmodern era; Isaiah saw it all before!

In this 8-part audio series, Brian Watts takes a look at Isaiah chapters 23 to 27. We live in times of enormous upheaval as the optimism of the modern era is eclipsed by postmodernism. We face challenges  in economic affairs, a population explosion, and environmental threats. But there is nothing new under the sun! Isaiah gave a profound perspective on surprisingly similar upheavals in his day, and also saw God’s long term vision for the future of the world. These chapters help us to understand what is happening.
