Item description for Ezekiel: An Exegetical and Theological Exposition of Holy Scripture (New American Commentary #17) by Lamar Eugene Cooper...
Overview The book of Ezekiel views human life in light of the glory of God. His glory dispels darkness and delights to dwell with those whose hope is in God rather that in the false glory of human achievement. The New American Commentary assumes the inerrancy of Scripture, focuses on the intrinsic theological and exegetical concerns of each biblical book, and engages the range of issues in contemporary biblical scholarship.
Publishers Description THE NEW AMERICAN COMMENTARY is for the minister or Bible student who wants to understand and expound the Scriptures. Notable features include: * commentary based on THE NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION; * the NIV text printed in the body of the commentary; * sound scholarly methodology that reflects capable research in the original languages; * interpretation that emphasizes the theological unity of each book and of Scripture as a whole; * readable and applicable exposition.

Reviews - What do customers think about The New American Commentary Volume 17 - Ezekiel?
helpful gapfiller between lay books and textual giants, but has little to say Jan 3, 2006
The treatment of the text is basic but OK even if one doesn't agree with the dispensational framework, but it's safe to call the author's exegesis consistent with it and even illuminating it. Very helpful introduction and charts throughout the book. You will like this book if you like Wevers, Taylor, Duguid or Craigie, maybe less if they like Blenkinsopp . Quality of exegesis can't match works like Hals, Zimmerli, Block or Greenberg, but does inform far more than Craigie. Good intertextual references but hardly any extrabiblical parallel, and maybe more painful: little pastoral concerns. Overall my guess is you will feel informed about canonical issues in Ezekiel but will wonder what relevance it has to you.
