The book of Ezekiel was written during a tumultuous time in Israel's history. It follows a period that began with Ezekiel's warning of Jerusalem's fall and his prediction of the destruction of the temple—a sanctuary regarded as so holy that its destruction was unimaginable. The period continues with Ezekiel's and others' exile to Babylon. Although much in the book of Ezekiel focuses on the consequences of Israel's rebellion against God that lead to the destruction of Jerusalem, even more deals with the hope of Israel's rebirth with divine assistance.

Books in the Westminster Bible Companion series assist laity in their study of the Bible as a guide to Christian faith and practice. Each volume explains the biblical book in its original historical context and explores its significance for faithful living today. These books are ideal for individual study and for Bible study classes and groups.

Editorial Reviews

Steven S. Tuell
The Westminster Bible Companion series is "intended to help the laity of the church read the Bible more clearly and intelligently" (p. ix). This purpose is ably addressed by Ronald Clements in his commentary on Ezekiel, which is well-written, cogent, non-technical, and addressed at every point to the concerns of Christian laity....Clements's commentary is a fine introduction to Ezekiel for the ordinary, intelligent Christian. That it is of interest even to the specialist is a measure of Clements's gifts.
