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.

"Joyce, one of the major experts on this biblical prophet, offers here a thorough commentary on a notoriously difficult book ... a significant contribution to Ezekiel studies." International Review of Biblical Studies, vol. 54:2007/08 "Joyce's commentary certainly succeeds...A fine commentary that will prove to be an important contribution to Ezekiel scholarship." -Jason Gile, Biblical Interpretation, Vol. 18, 2010 Joyce's vast knowledge of Ezekiel studies, reflected throughout the commentary, in not to be taken for granted - this is the most useful traditional commentary currently available.' -- The Scottish Journal of Theology Joyce's vast knowledge of Ezekiel studies, reflected throughout the commentary, is not to be taken for granted- this is the most useful traditional commentary currently available. -- Journal of SJT [Ezekiel: A Commentary] will be useful to students and scholars on various levels and constitutes a helpful resource for theological and research libraries. -- Religious Studies Review Mentioned in the Church Times Dr Joyce has put all students of prophecy in his debt with a clear, concise and up-to-date commentary on the book of Ezekiel. This is a thoroughly commended survey of recent studies of the most complex and controversial of the prophetic books of the Old Testament. It explains the problems and recounts and evaluates the proposed solutions to them. From a world where temple-symbolism, ritual-enforced holiness and grotesque visions provided an unfamiliar religious setting, Ezekiel emerges as a figure who upheld human responsibility and awareness of the fundamentally spiritual nature of hope. The commentary should do much to set Ezekiel as a worthy companion alongside the congenial figures of Isaiah and Jeremiah. --Ronald E. Clements, Emeritus Professor of Old Testament Studies, King's College, University of London "the commentary contains an extensive introduction that deals with issues of date, place, authorial unity/disunity, theological themes, allusions to earlier traditions, text and versions, place inb canon, and Ezekiel in later traditions" "The introduction is followed by a concise commentary" "Offers fresh insight into the book of Ezekiel. Joyce never merely repeats another scholar's opinion but always offers his own well-informed perspective. This book is a valuable additin to the literature devoted to the book of Ezekiel and it can be highly recommended" Lena-Sofia Tiemeyer, Ex pository Times Vol.119 n.10 July 2008 Paul Joyce's commentary on Ezekiel is warmly commended. It is unique in the way that it concentrates on Ezekiel's theology, thereby bringing his thought to life. -- Jacob Milgrom, Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies University of California at Berkeley It is a rare commentator who combines judicious historical research with genuine literary sensitivity, and Paul Joyce has done just that in this fresh and deeply insightful theological interpretation of the book of Ezekiel. Rich in exegetical detail but never bogged down by it, Ezekiel: A Commentary gets to the heart of Ezekiel's message, never losing sight of the thorny and fundamental question for understanding the book, What is Ezekiel saying about God and God's relation to his people? How does this most difficult to understand prophet deal with the knotty questions of divine justice and power in the wake of the crisis of exile? Learned, informative and engagingly written, this commentary is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the prophet and his by turns perplexing, bizarre, unsettling and oddly comforting message for a time of national catastrophe. -- J. Cheryl Exum, Professor of Biblical Studies, University of Sheffield "In this relatively short commentary, Paul Joyce - noted Ezekiel scholar and chair of the Society of Biblical Literat
