Excellent Introductory Commentary
4 stars By Ben, Feb 27 2017
This commentary by Christopher Wright is an excellent introductory and overview commentary. Being in the Bible Speaks Today series, it's obviously not a highly technical commentary, but does a great job at opening up the meaning and message of Ezekiel - a difficult task in some ways!

As a pastor, I found this commentary helpful because it gets straight to understanding the message and big picture of each passage in Ezekiel without getting bogged down in the verse-by-verse details, which is very helpful when you're teaching on larger chunks. Of course, it is helpful to have verse-by-verse details sometimes too, but I found it helpful to use this as a starting block and go to a more technical commentary if I needed to dig deeper.

The only reason I haven't given this volume 5 stars is that it doesn't cover every chapter of Ezekiel - there are a few which are simply given brief synopses for the sake of length. But still an excellent introductory commentary to a difficult book.
