"Professor Block has provided the most thorough commentary on the Book of Ezekiel since the work of Walther Zimmerli. The breadth of his citations shows his mastery of both the historical and current literature on Ezekiel, and makes the commentary into a library reference shelf. If one had to make an educated guess, this will be an important resource for all who work in Ezekiel for years to come."
Bibliotheca Sacra
"A true tour de force. It is no overstatement to say that this work will become, to the evangelical community at least, the point of departure for serious teaching and preaching of the Book of Ezekiel."
Expository Times
"A mine of information and informed comment. Block is well-read and provides a reading of the text which will satisfy many Bible readers."
Internationale Zeitschriftenschau für Bibelwissenschaft und Grenzgebiete (IZBG)
"This is the first volume of what is currently the most convincing historical and critical interpretation of the book of Ezekiel. Block interacts with international scholarship but is not easily impressed with contemporary fads of interpretation. Block is to be congratulated on his achievement."
Religious Studies Review
"Block's aim is to make the book of Ezekiel 'understandable and meaningful for contemporary readers' by considering questions 'students of Scripture' would ask (text critical, cultural and literary, hermeneutical and theological, and application). Block's style of exposition is clear and accessible; all major propositions are enumerated. His judicious use of comparative ancient Near Eastern material is commendable. Readers lacking a knowledge of Hebrew will also use this book with profit. Recommended for all libraries."
The Bible Today
"A rich resource for serious study."
