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 of the relationship between Ezekiel and the Priestly Source. It also addresses 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.
