Pastors and leaders of the classical church--such as Augustine, Calvin, Luther, and Wesley--interpreted the Bible theologically, believing Scripture as a whole witnessed to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Modern interpreters of the Bible questioned this premise. But in recent decades, a critical mass of theologians and biblical scholars has begun to reassert the priority of a theological reading of Scripture.

The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret Scripture for the twenty-first century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. In this addition to the series, esteemed theologian Robert W. Jenson presents a theological exegesis of Ezekiel.

From the Inside Flap:

Praise for previous volumes in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible

"The significance of these commentaries and the series [they] inaugurate [is] manifold, because they promise not only to serve as a means for sifting the wheat and chaff of much recently accumulated hermeneutical theory but also to offer the commentary a place at the theological table it has had difficulty attaining in modernism. . . . [Acts] is a tour de force of the history of doctrine, as [Jaroslav] Pelikan draws in his lifetime to remark upon a vast panoply of subjects."--Steven J. Koskie, Journal of Theological Interpretation

"[Peter] Leithart does an eminently satisfying work of exposition. . . . [1 & 2 Kings is] stimulating in its unabashedly theological interpretive stance. Such a starting point for the exegetical task inquires differently of the text and renders fresh applications and observations. The two disciplines of biblical and theological studies can only benefit from cross-disciplinary engagement and, certainly, Leithart demonstrates that both disciplines can be used critically and in service of the Church."--Lissa M. Wray Beal, Toronto Journal of Theology

"In [Matthew], there is substantial discussion of a whole host of issues that are of profound importance to Christians. . . . The commentary is the work of one capable of acute observation and profound thought. At his best [Stanley] Hauerwas shows some real sensitivity to Matthew's story telling technique. . . . There is certainly much to challenge and inspire Christian readers."--John Nolland, Review of Biblical Literature

"Preachers will . . . find considerable assistance and rich theological material in Leviticus. . . . With this volume, [Ephraim Radner] makes a serious contribution to biblical scholarship."--Preaching|Robert W. Jenson (DrTheol, University of Heidelberg) is former senior scholar for research at the Center of Theological Inquiry. He is the author of On Thinking the Human: Resolutions of Difficult Notions and coeditor (with Carl Braaten) of Christian Dogmatics.

From the Back Cover:

The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret scripture creedally for the twenty-first century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. Ezekiel, like each commentary in the series, is designed to serve the church--through aid in preaching, teaching, study groups, and so forth--and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.

"Robert Jenson brings to the interpretation of Ezekiel years of theological study, a deeply Trinitarian vision, and an ability to read the Bible as Christian scripture. That combination vivifies the dry bones of much standard biblical exegesis and illumines what is surely one of the strangest of biblical books."--Gilbert Meilaender, Valparaiso University

"Here is a faithful Christocentric reading of Ezekiel that sits happily alongside this Jewish reader's cherished volume of Moshe Greenberg's commentary on Ezekiel. Jenson's Christocentric reading is also a deep reading of this text, drawing up dimensions of form and force and meaning that will also serve the rabbinic reader: not because of any leveling or syncretism, but because, once drawn up, these dimensions may then be drawn forward in their different ways by the differing communities of rabbinic and Christian readers."--Peter Ochs, University of Virginia
