Product Description

With the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple and the exile of members of the Israelite community to the land of its enemies, whose gods were represented as divine statues, the prophet Ezekiel faced a challenge: how to respond to the enemies' taunts that Israel's God was absent, whereas the foreigners' gods self-evidently were present. Thus, to ask the question, "Where is God" was to face several complex and tangled problems. How is God to be represented? How is Yahweh to be differentiated from other dieties? What is Yahweh's relationship to Israel in exile? Kutsko sets out to answer these questions within the theme of divine presence and absence, showing that, in the end, the book of Ezekiel plays a central and previously unappreciated role in the development of Israelite theology.
