One of the most perplexing and misunderstood books of the Bible, Ezekiel has left many scholars and exegetes scratching their heads regarding its message, coherency, and interpretation. Brian Peterson's look at the book of Ezekiel as a unified whole set within an exilic context helps explain some of the more difficult symbolic aspects in the book and makes Ezekiel as a whole more intelligible. Drawing on ancient Near Eastern concepts and motifs such as covenant and treaty curses, the various gods that made up the Babylonian pantheon, and the position that Israel held as the people of Yahweh, Peterson enlightens readers by showing that Ezekiel can only be understood in its original context. By placing the book first in its historical context, Peterson demonstrates how the original hearers of its message would have understood it, and how this message can be appreciated and applied by people today as well.

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Synopsis: One of the most perplexing and misunderstood books of the Bible, Ezekiel has left many scholars and exegetes scratching their heads regarding its message, coherency, and interpretation. Brian Peterson s look at the book of Ezekiel as a unified whole set within an exilic context helps explain some of the more difficult symbolic aspects in the book and makes Ezekiel as a whole more intelligible. Drawing on ancient Near Eastern concepts and motifs such as covenant and treaty curses, the various gods that made up the Babylonian pantheon, and the position that Israel held as the people of Yahweh, Peterson enlightens readers by showing that Ezekiel can only be understood in its original context. By placing the book first in its historical context, Peterson demonstrates how the original hearers of its message would have understood it, and how this message can be appreciated and applied by people today as well. Endorsements: Not a commentary, theology, or a handbook on biblical backgrounds, this remarkable work combines all three of these and more with vital information about the historical, cultural, and religious milieu of the world in which Ezekiel, the most mysterious of prophets, lived and ministered. --Eugene H. Merrill, PhD Distinguished Professor of Old Testament Studies Dallas Theological Seminary Ironically, by taking the reader on a journey to a world far away and long ago, Ezekiel in Context brings the text of this fascinating biblical book alive. Peterson s sensitivity to the ancient milieu in which the book of Ezekiel was shaped and to the literary pictures through which its message was communicated makes this monograph essential reading for those interested in hearing the original message of this exilic prophet. --Mark J. Boda, PhD (Cantab.) Professor of Old Testament, McMaster Divinity College Professor in the Faculty of Theology, McMaster University Author Biography: Brian Peterson is Assistant Professor of Old Testament at Prairie Bible College in Three Hills, Alberta, Canada.
