9780391041622: The Rhetorical Function of the Book of Ezekiel

In this study, Renz argues that the book of Ezekiel functions as a rhetorical unit, that it addresses a specific rhetorical situation, and that it aims at shaping the self-understanding of the second-generation of Judaean exiles and defining the "true Israel." After examining the historical context of the exile, the author addresses the overall literary arrangement and the individual rhetorical techniques in the book. A final chapter explores the book's rhetorical effectiveness in presenting a suitable response to the issues the exilic community faced. Renz offers both a convincing analysis of the book of Ezekiel as well as a model for the fruitful integration of traditional critical methods with more recent literary, rhetorical, and sociological approaches. This book will interest all those who study the history, literature, and theology of ancient Israel. This publication has also been published in hardback, please click here for details.

Review:

'"In his treatment of the rhetorical complexities of Ezekiel as well as in his reconstruction of the concerns of the second generation of Judaean exiles, Renz has not only built on past generations of Ezekiel scholarship, he has also defined an approach that will stimulate further investigation for many years to come. " Margaret S. Odell, "St. Olaf College.""
