Ezekiel is clear and accessible without sacrificing serious scholarship. The aim of this volume is to offer a distinctive engagement with the theological dynamics of the book for readers from the Wesleyan theological tradition, with a special eye to Ezekiel’s use of Old Testament priestly theology to respond to the trauma associated with the Babylonian Exile.
In the Logos edition, each Scripture passage links to your favorite translation, and is easy to study side by side with your other Ezekiel commentaries. You can search by topic or Scripture with remarkably fast results.
