Ezekiel in Context
Ezekiel’s Message Understood in Its Historical Setting of Covenant Curses and Ancient Near Eastern Mythological Motifs
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"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."

"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."
