Ezekiel comes to us as a stranger from a distant time and land. Who is this man? He is a priest who, on his thirtieth birthday, has a dazzling vision of God on a wheeled throne; an odd prophet who engages in outlandish street theater and speaks for God on international affairs; and a seer who paints murals of apocalyptic doom and then of a restored temple bursting with emblems of paradise. Should we take this literally, reading the text as we read the news or a history textbook? Or is there a better way?

Christopher Wright masterfully opens our eyes to see and understand the message of Ezekiel. Ezekiel's vision of the glory of God—its departure and return—is set first within Israel's history and then in the culmination of God's promises in Christ. Embedded in the pattern of the strange and the wonderful is a word that still speaks to God's people today.

Part of the beloved Bible Speaks Today series, The Message of Ezekiel offers an insightful, readable exposition of the biblical text and thought-provoking discussion of how its meaning relates to contemporary life. Used by students and teachers around the world, the Bible Speaks Today commentaries are ideal for those studying or preaching the Bible and anyone who wants to delve deeper into the text. This revised edition of a classic volume features lightly updated language and a new interior design.
