Studies on Ezekiel (3 vols.)

by , ,

Sheffield Academic Press 1989–2003

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


This 3-volume collection focuses on the literary significance of the prophet Ezekiel, examining narrative motifs and construction, gender roles, language style, and the place of Ezekiel among the other prophets of the Old Testament. Featuring over 500 pages and three top Old Testament experts, Studies on Ezekiel (3 Vols.) is the perfect addition to your study of the Old Testament prophets. These academic works use literary criticism and techniques to interpret the theological and contextual significance of this prophet’s life and message. For instance, A New Heart and a New Soul looks at how the language itself can help our understanding of the Torah. In Swallowing the Scroll, Ellen F. Davis points out how the book of Ezekiel encapsulates a new kind of literary style in the succession of Old Testament prophets, and what that means in light of the Old Testament as a whole.

Studies on Ezekiel (3 Vols.) is perfect for students, professors, and anyone wanting a better understanding of the literary and scholastic components of this book of prophecy. The Logos edition makes it easy to study side-by-side with your other Old Testament resources, and all of the Scripture references are linked to the Bibles and original text languages resources in your library.

A New Heart and a New Soul: Ezekiel, the Exile and the Torah

  • Author: Risa Levitt Kohn
  • Publisher: Sheffield Academic Press
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 160

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This book examines, in greater detail than previously undertaken, the presence of Priestly and Deuteronomic language and concepts in the book of Ezekiel. It asks what the nature is between the relationship between Ezekiel and the Priestly Source? It also addresses the nature of the relationship between Ezekiel, Deuteronomy, and the Deuteronomistic History. A New Heart and a New Soul: Ezekiel, the Exile and the Torah seeks to answer the question of where does the book of Ezekiel stand in the evolution of Israelite history, theology and literature, what can Ezekiel teach us about the composition of the Torah? This is a fine addition to any studies on this important book of the Old Testament.

Gender Reversal and Cosmic Chaos: A Study on the Book of Ezekiel

  • Author: S. Tamar Kamionkowski
  • Publisher: Sheffield Academic Press
  • Publication Date: 2003
  • Pages: 192

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This book is about both the fear of gender reversal and its expression in the prophet Ezekiel's reworking of the marital metaphor. Kamionkowski argues that the abomination of "wife Jerusalem" is that she is attempting to pass for a male, thereby crossing gender boundaries and upsetting the world order. This story is therefore one of confused gender scripts, ensuing chaos, and a re-ordering through the reinforcement of these strictly defined prescriptions of gendered behavior. Using socio-historical evidence and the existence of the literary motif of men turning into women as a framework, this book argues that Ezekiel 16, in particular, reflects the gender chaos which arises as an aftermath of social and theological crises.

Swallowing the Scroll: Textuality and the Dynamics of Discourse in Ezekiel’s Prophecy

  • Author: Ellen F. Davis
  • Publisher: Sheffield Academic Press
  • Publication Date: 2009
  • Pages: 184

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In this original study, Dr. Davis argues that Ezekiel's place in the history of prophecy is overdue for reassessment. As against current views that Ezekiel represents the collapse of prophetism into priestly and scribal forms, she argues that something radically different in prophecy begins with Ezekiel. Ezekiel represents the creation of a new literary idiom for prophecy. He develops an archival speech form oriented less toward current events than to reshaping the tradition. He has taken a step backward from direct confrontation with an audience as the basic dynamic of communication, and has made the medium of prophecy not the person of the prophet but the text. Like the postexilic prophets, Ezekiel participated in the transformation of the social role of prophecy, and thereby saved himself from oblivion.
