From the Publisher
Properly understood, this mysterious book with its obscure images offers profound comfort to us today. Filled with both an indictment of sin and promise for God's people, it can help us to live, like the ancient Israelites during the Babylonian captivity, as exiles in the foreign country of this world, with endurance and hope.
From the Author
Iain M. Duguid (Ph.D., Cambridge University) is associate professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary in California, and the author of Ezekiel and the Leaders of Israel

Each chapter is divided into 4 sections: 1. The Text 2. The Original Meaning(of the passage) 3. A "Bridging Contexts" section (which shows the relationship between what was relevant at the time of the prophecy and how it is relevant today) 4. Contemporary Significance (how it applies to the church and world we live in today).
He writes in a manner which is clear and concise, and makes this book very practical for today's readers. Ezekiel is not an easy book to understand and good commentaries on it are few and far between. This one is a gem, but don't expect to just sit down and read it like you would a devotional. If you read it a chapter at a time and take notes, you will be greatly blessed.
It really makes one scratch his head over how a professional, major publishing company could put out a Kindle book without a truly navigable TOC. I mean, it's so basic. Partly due to this, I was skeptical of reviews on the series' other commentaries that made this claim; that and the fact that I recently bought the Deuteronomy commentary by Block and it does have a genuinely navigable TOC, complete with the whole long list of subheadings covering the whole commentary section itself (though it, too, has some Kindle problems). Why the inconsistency, I don't know. I really like my Kindle, but the publishing standards for Kindle books--even coming from major publishing companies--are far too often far below the standards for print books, such that sometimes the whole thing just feels somewhat cheap. Anyway, in short, I didn't want to give the fine commentary itself a low rating, but to give potential Kindle-version purchasers a heads up.
Update 11/21/2014: The Kindle version has actually been reformatted so that it now has a full, active TOC, and fortunately Amazon allowed me to "update" to the reformatted version. Props to both Zondervan for reformatting the the book and Amazon for allowing me to get the latest version.
It is a commentary of Ezekiel and along with each chapter or portion of commentary there is an application, which makes it very helpful for personal as well as corporate growth.
Duguid's commentary offers the perfect balance of scholarly insight, theological understanding, and pertinent illustrations for the believer today. Excellent Work! Chris Hall
