Product Description

God was always faithful in honoring his covenant with Israel. But when the chosen people repeatedly forgot that covenant, they experienced divine chastening, especially through the fall of Jerusalem. The prophet Ezekiel was God's messenger to a generation born in exile, after Jerusalem's fall in 587 B.C., to a people brought low by the burden of sin. But what began as a stern pronouncement of judgement soon climaxed in a joyous prediction of salvation. Dr. Leslie C. Allen's commentary on the last half of the Book of Ezekiel (chapters 20-48) captures the spirit of those times as it portrays Ezekiel the prophet as a watchman, a forseer of the millenium, and as perhaps the most sophisticated of the biblical prophets. Allen's research also scrutinizes Ezekiel's priestly training, as evidenced in the book's precise, structured, and chronological format. Leslie Allen is professor of Old Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary. He has the Ph.D. from the University College of London.
