Ezekiel is one of the longest and most complex prophetic books---it's difficult to understand and to teach. This new Interpretation volume begins by explaining how to read prophecy. Then Blenkinsopp analyzes Ezekiel's structure and deciphers its language. The commentary proper focuses on the political and social situation in Ezekiel's time, showing how the destruction of Jerusalem precipitated a political and religious crisis. This clearly-drawn map through Ezekiel will hearten any teacher! Hardcover from John Knox, 288 pages.
This major work explores the message and meaning of Ezekiel, one of the longest and most difficult of the prophetic books. An introduction explains what is involved in reading a prophetic book, and how the book of Ezekiel was put together and structured. It looks at the form of speech used and discusses Ezekiel's author and those who transmitted, edited, and enlarged upon what he had to say. The destruction of Jerusalem is a primary concern, and attention is focused on the political and social situation of the time in order to provide a clear understanding of the political and religious crisis facing the prophet's contemporaries.
