Customer Reviews for Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. The Book of Ezekiel, Chapters 1-24 & 25-38 New International Commentary on the Old Testament [NICOT], 2 Vols.

Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. The Book of Ezekiel, Chapters 1-24 & 25-38 New International Commentary on the Old Testament [NICOT], 2 Vols.

Cutting through the confusion of Ezekiel's relentless denunciations, unconventional antics, and baffling array of topics, Block offers a detailed and accurate translation combined with masterful verse-by-verse exposition. Carefully examining authorship, dates, historical setting, and the original text, he demonstrates how the message of this extraordinary visionary is still relevant today. 1664 pages total, two hardcovers from Eerdmans.

There are now quite a few excellent commentaries on the Book of Ezekiel. However, Block’s is clearly the best. For length and depth combined with an Evangelical approach, nothing is better. Most of the scholarly interaction can be found in the extensive footnotes. Block provides very helpful comments on structure, grammar, history, literary devices, symbolism and theology. He also has extensive discusses about how Ezekiel fits into the history and message of the cannon as a whole. It has often rightly been said that “no one commentary can do it all,” but this two-volume work comes very close.
