About "Ezekiel - a Commentary (Library Of Hebrew Bible/old Testament Studies Series)"
The book begins with a thorough introduction to the main critical questions that arise in connection with the book of Ezekiel. It covers the historical-critical agenda but also includes newer approaches and questions, such as psychological issues and the notion that Ezekiel should be regarded as a 'character' within the book. The emphasis is on the insight that many different kinds of questions may illumine a text like Ezekiel. The commentary treats each of the chapters of the book of Ezekiel in turn. The chapter-by-chapter commentary summarizes the main themes of the chapter and raises the main critical issues that arise in relation to the chapter, before proceeding to detailed exegesis.
