In this ambitious project, Launderville draws out a wealth of fascinating information about the Mesopotamian and pre-Socratic Greek traditions, and puts them into conversation with Ezekiel. His cross-cultural approach to Ezekiel's use of symbolic language to make meaning is a most welcome addition to the scholarship on this prophetic book. --Jacqueline Lapsley, Associate Professor of Old Testament, Princeton Theological Seminary
Launderville has examined a remarkable selection of Ancient Near Eastern and Greek literature and addressed issues that lie outside typical monographs devoted to that prophet. I know no other scholar who has the capacity to work with this scope. --David Petersen, Professor of New Testament, Candler School of Theology at Emory University
