About-

The challenge of reading the Old Testament as Christian Scripture is nowhere more evident than in the book of Ezekiel. Its judgmental attitude, harsh words, and bizarre imagery provoke Christian readers who, familiar with the gospel, are unsure of what to do with such a strange book.



This volume from the Wycliffe Studies in Gospel, Church, and Culture series offers some Christ-centered reflections on the book of Ezekiel, showing us that, even here, the same God present to us in Jesus Christ can be heard through an attentive listening to what Ezekiel is saying to us. From words of judgement and bizarre imagery of heaven, to redemptive forecasts of a hopeful future, these meditations cover the difficult terrain of Ezekiel’s visions and draw out a life-giving and Christ-centered reading of his strange message.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Insightful and pithy! Threading together the insights of speakers from diverse educational backgrounds, this work shakes the metaphorical dust off this sixth-century prophet and walks the reader through Ezekiel in a series of meditations to help us apply the words of this oft-misunderstood book to a modern setting. This book is a must read for those who want to gain an appreciation for Ezekiel’s message for a modern audience.”

—Brian Peterson, Associate Professor of the Hebrew Bible, Lee University, author of Ezekiel in Context



“Consistently thoughtful, frequently illuminating, and occasionally downright provocative, this series of meditations on Ezekiel bears witness to one Christian community’s sustained engagement with some hard words of prophecy from the Scriptures of Israel. Now with the addition of keen questions for reflection, it has been reshaped into a gift to other communities of faith who may wish to take up the same worthy challenge.”

—Daniel R. Driver, Associate Professor of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Atlantic School of Theology
