Publisher's Description

This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable.

Hals analyzes in detail the structure and intention of the unusually long prophecies of Ezekiel. Because this prophet genuinely qualifies for the designation "theologian," Hals devotes much attention to examining Ezekiel's theological perspective and style. He argues that Ezekiel, despite his proclamations of judgment, is not a prophet of despair. Rather, Ezekiel affirms the stubborn grace of Israel's sovereign Lord — the God who follows his people into the death of exile and loss of nationhood and promises them life out of death via a new exodus, a new "peoplehood," and a new temple.

Editorial Reviews

Carroll Stuhlmueller
"Professor Hals tackles a very complicated text of the Bible. Much of the darkness and haze across the pages of Ezekiel clears away because of the author's long acquaintance with this prophecy and also because of his own clear thinking and uncomplicated style of writing. Students will be helped immensely in rereading the biblical text, whether in the Hebrew or in the RSV. "
