An Introduction to the Study of Ezekiel
Lyons, Michael

London: Bloomsbury, 2015 pp. 224. $90.00

Series Information
T&T Clark Approaches to Biblical Studies


Description: An introduction to the study of Ezekiel that lays out for the reader the central issues for the interpretation of the book of Ezekiel. After explaining how the message of the prophet was relevant to the exilic situation in which he lived, this thorough guide shows how later generations shaped, transmitted, and used Ezekiel in their own communities. The book summarizes the literary shape and contents of Ezekiel, then examines the theories and methodologies used in current scholarship that explain the formation of Ezekiel. Lyons next explains for the reader the theology and major themes of Ezekiel, and closes by evaluating how the arguments of Ezekiel relate to each other as a coherent rhetorical strategy.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Prophetic Literature, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, Ezekiel
