Revised review. Returned to Wright when I finished Ezekiel (using Stuart, Taylor, Duguid.) Now Wright's organization makes more sense - but might be confusing to a newbie to Ezekiel like me! Wright is a great writer and he makes many helpful comments - some are VERY inspirational. Webmaster. Please delete my earlier review!
I am lowering my rating. Everything was going great until I got to Ezekiel Chapters 12 and 13. Nothing. Repeat: nothing. Then Chris does some creative (and confusing) re-organization - grouping chapters together and losing me and probably many others. THE BIBLE SPEAKS TODAY SERIES is an introductory commentary. IVP - PLEASE REVISE OR REPLACE. (Wright is a tremendous person and writer. But sorry...this book is CONFUSING and the re-organization was a bad idea.)
I have several commentaries on Ezekiel. This one by Wright is excellent. Highly recommended.
Great commentary. Easy to read but addresses the text and the theological issues associated with it. As always Wright is great at seeing how each passage fits into the larger picture of the whole Bible and God's plan for the nations. Highly recommended.
Superb exposition of the book of Ezekiel. It does not always treat the text in order, and doesn't cover everything, but Wright does a brilliant job of bringing the character of Ezekiel to life, and showing how the theology and challenge of Ezekiel's message matter for us today. [Full Review]
