The book of Ezekiel was written during a tumultuous time in Israel's history. It begins with Ezekiel's warning of Jerusalem's fall and his at the time unbelievable prediction of the destruction of the temple. Ezekiel also covers the period up through the Babylonian exile. Although much in the book of Ezekiel focuses on the consequences of Israel's rebellion against God that led to the destruction of Jerusalem, even more deals with the hope of Israel's rebirth with divine assistance. In this book, Old Testament scholar Ronald Clements explains the world and worldview of Ezekiel. What emerges is a vision of hope and rebirth for all who seek God's love and guidance.
