"Joyce's commentary certainly succeeds...A fine commentary that will prove to be an important contribution to Ezekiel scholarship."
-Jason Gile, Biblical Interpretation, Vol. 18, 2010

Paul Joyce's commentary on Ezekiel is warmly commended. It is unique in the way that it concentrates on Ezekiel's theology, thereby bringing his thought to life. Jacob Milgrom, Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies University of California at Berkeley

It is a rare commentator who combines judicious historical research with genuine literary sensitivity, and Paul Joyce has done just that in this fresh and deeply insightful theological interpretation of the book of Ezekiel. Rich in exegetical detail but never bogged down by it, Ezekiel: A Commentary" gets to the heart of Ezekiel's message, never losing sight of the thorny and fundamental question for understanding the book, What is Ezekiel saying about God and God's relation to his people? How does this most difficult to understand prophet deal with the knotty questions of divine justice and power in the wake of the crisis of exile? Learned, informative and engagingly written, this commentary is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the prophet and his by turns perplexing, bizarre, unsettling and oddly comforting message for a time of national catastrophe.

J. Cheryl Exum, Professor of Biblical Studies, University of Sheffield
