Editorial Reviews


"Biblical scholars, church historians, and preachers will benefit greatly from this volume's historical and interpretive insights." (Mark Glen Bilby, Religious Studies Review, Volume 39, Number 2, June 2013)

"Ezekiel, Daniel provides an excellent opportunity for readers to enter into the minds of the Reformers as they engage and interpret two of the cardinal documents of the faith. . . . Ezekiel, Daniel will certainly be useful for believers, students, and scholars of the Bible who wish to have a better understanding of the Reformation." (Armond Boudreaux, Sixteenth Century Journal, XLIV/1 (2013))

"Carl Beckwith's Ezekiel, Daniel provides good, sizeable excerpts from Reformation Era commentary on these prophetic books. It is especially valuable in difficult books such as these to see how the church in previous ages dealt with certain texts." (Ray Van Neste, Preaching, November/December 2012)

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Clint Walker VINE VOICE on March 23, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Ezekiel, Daniel by Carl Beckwith is the second book published in what is expected to be a twenty-eight volume commentary series entitled The Reformation Commentary on Scripture. In each volume the editors attempt to assemble the teachings of the leaders and theologians of the Reformation, paying attention to both the most influential leaders as well as the diversity of thinkers throughout the movement.

This is an excellent commentary. As is true with many of the best commentaries, the introduction is a must read, and lays the foundation for the rest of what follows. In this introduction, Carl Beckwith helps us understand that Exekiel was not a high priority for the reformers to write about for most of their lives. Neither Calvin or Luther wrote a complete work on Ezekiel, although Calvin was trying to preach through at the same time he was dying. Daniel is a little more commonly studied by the most well-known reformers, mostly because of its role in messianic and apocolyptic prophecy.

Another thing that you learn from the introduction to Ezekiel, Daniel is that the editor makes liberal use of the independent and Anabaptist reformers. At points, even John Bunyan is included in this commentary. I was happy to see Richard Baxter was used as a resource as well.

I think this may be the case for two reasons. First, I think resources in certain sections of Ezekiel was hard to find, and thus the editor had to be more generous in his sourcing. Also, I wonder if the fact that Beckwith serves at a seminary that has more independent and Baptist leanings makes him more interested in what the reformers from those backgrounds have to say.

My reason for requesting Ezekiel, Daniel was the opportunity to read commentary from reformers like Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Owen, John Bunyan, Richard Baxter and many other ancient expositors. This volume provides the opportunity to see how they interpreted these challenging Old Testament books. What I read convinces me that the existing and forthcoming volumes in this series will be a valuable addition to any theological library. Collect them all if you value commentaries.

These commentators stand outside our era and culture offering varied and different interpretations than their modern counterparts. They may not always be right, and they don’t always agree, but echoing the thought of G. K. Chesterton, they should have a voice at the table. It is not just contemporaries that need to be heard.

One instance where the reformers agree, but may be wrong, is their reading of the description of the temple in Ezekiel 40-48. They see it as figurative of the Church and heaven but not literal. This stands in sharp contrast to the many today looking for a literal rebuilding of the temple.

When Christ took hold of my life in the late 1970s, it wasn’t long before I encountered teaching on Ezekiel 36-38. Many see a reference to Russia invading Israel in the last days. While that may be the case, the reformers do not have the same emphasis. I value their perspective because it can keep us from having a narrow view. The second part of Proverbs 11:14 states that “in an abundance of counselors there is safety.” A consensus of opinion is worth considering and may help one to avoid error.

This volume effectively brings together the reformers’ most concise thoughts, which are drawn from a multitude of writings.

Format: Hardcover
A few months ago, I invited you to our own little night of the Inklings featuring a massive dining table filled with all the well-known and not-so-well-known thinkers, preachers, theologians, scholars, and revolutionaries from the Protestant Reformation--there was Theodore Beza, the French reformed pastor and professor who succeeded John Calvin as leader of the French Reformed ecclesial communities; the Dominican friar turned Reformer Martin Bucer; in the corner sat famed Martin Luther nursing a third (or perhaps fifth?) German Doppelbock; Dutch humanist and scholar Desiderius Erasmus got the evil eye several times from Luther across the room; and then there was John Calvin who was often seen in heated debates with Jacobus Arminius over predestination and divine foreknowledge.

On that particular night we were treated to a rousing discussion of Galatians & Ephesians. Well, I'd like to invite you back to another rousing conversation, this time of another sort: the Old Testament prophetic books of Ezekiel and Daniel. Like before this will be quite the party, and you're invited to experience it through IVP's new Reformation Commentary on Scripture series, which I was given by IVP to review.

As I said before, this new series that's similar in scope and vision as the highly acclaimed Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture series. It's like a dinner party with the greatest, most influential minds of the Reformation era all brought together to share their insights and interpretations and give their input into the ongoing exegetical and theological mission of the Church in the 21st century. And you're invited into the party to follow along with their discussion, even joining in at times with your pushback, revisions, and extensions.
