Product Description

From the Back Cover

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into a modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Keith Plant. on 6 Jan. 2014
Format: Hardcover
Having overviewed Ezekiel twice (once in the series of sermons at my former church and secondly as one of the speakers at a 'Keswick at home' type event) I have found this to be one of the best commentaries out of the ones I have used (and I've got quite a few). I nearly titled this review 'The perfect commentary for a lazy Preacher', but I felt that would be too disparaging. But let me tell you what I mean by that possible title. The commentary is set out with the text that is being commented on first and then a three-part analysis of that text. These are titled as follows: 'Original meaning', 'Bridging the context' and finally 'Contemporary significance'. So perhaps you can see what I mean as the author takes you from the original text and its meaning, then deals with any difficulties in the transition from the context it was written in and finally applies it to the modern day. Hence the success of this commentary is that it makes Ezekiel a fascinating book and a relevant book. The 'Keswick at home' event went particularly well and people seemed thrilled by the teaching. Later when talking to a lady who had been a missionary for many years(and therefore was well acquainted with the scriptures) but now retired, I mentioned I was a bit amazed by the reaction to the talks. Her answer was most illuminating as she commented that when she was heard that Ezekiel was going to be covered in this conference she had read half of the book and, as she said, didn't understand it. However, since the conference her view had changed. Her final comment was this: "not only do I now understand it, I now understand how relevant it is in this day and age." Such a comment is music to a preachers ears, but I have to confess it says more about Iain Duguid's excellent commentary than my ability!

Whilst enjoying the NIV Application series as a whole, some are better than others. This so far is the best. Duguid takes a difficult book and brings it alive. His application is very helpful and the cross is never far from his thoughts. No doubt some will disagree with his views on the temple chapters, but his arguments against a literal rebuilding of a temple are compelling describing these chapters as theology through architecture and the next ones on the division of the land as theology through geography . However, even if you disagree, the rest of the commentary is well worth the purchase. It is a lengthy commentary but I am on my second reading of it. Whilst Duguid is a professor he comes over very much as a pastor. Buy it, you won't regret it.

Very practical commentary with clear explanation of original text, what this meant at the time and what it means to us today.

Clear & Helpful 30 Mar. 2002
By David A Booth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a superb commentary and the best one I have read in the NIV series. Pastors and Bible Teachers will particularly appreciate this work - though those relatively new to serious Bible study should not be put off. If you are having difficulty getting a handle on the book of Ezekiel, this is the first place you should turn to for help. Highly recommended.

Good Overview 3 Jan. 2010
By J. M. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Unlike most commentaries, this book is a pleasure to read. It is divided into sections, each dealing with a chapter or two of Ezekiel; for each section, Duguid thoroughly discusses its original meaning, context, and contemporary significance. His discussions are lucid, insightful, and helpful, clearly illuminating the dominant themes. But be aware that in spite of its large size, this is not a verse-by-verse commentary. Duguid devotes much more space to thematic material and context than to technical detail, and in doing so he leaves many questions unanswered. What he says he says well, but if you want to really dig into the text, it might be helpful to use another commentary as a supplement.

Outstanding Commentary 9 Jan. 2009
By Stephen Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I've never felt the need to review a commentary before, but this book deserves it. I'm most of the way through reading this entire book (something I rarely do with commentaries) and I'm still enthralled. This is probably the best commentary I've ever encountered.
The author's reformed slant is obvious throughout, but never in your face--and his few paragraphs on subjects like infant baptism are educational for someone like me from a different tradition and without even a hint of being obnoxious.
I've been reading this book devotionally for months as a way to try to understand the difficult book of Ezekiel and I'm convinced by the time I'm finished I will finally have a handle on the often-confusing book. While Duguid's commentary is not the most scholarly treatment available, this well-educated pastor couldn't recommend it more highly.

Great Commentary on Ezekiel 24 Oct. 2009
By D.A.Beirne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Highly recommended. Used this as an aide when studying through Ezekiel and this was enlightening. Loved the format, and though not heavy on Hebrew and exegesis, he brought out the conclusions of his exegesis. Lots of good background/setting stuff, loved the sections of each chapter on application. While not all NIV Application Commentaries are consistently good, this one is a top choice for studying Ezekiel.

Very Helpful Commentary 9 Feb. 2014
By Wesley A. Russell II - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Dr. Duguid's comentary is a book I would highly recommend to anyone interested in teaching, preaching or studying the Prophecies of Ezekiel. HIs writing is expository and does not cover every verse of every chapter. However, this commentary is not simplistic by any means as he spends over 450 pages to cover the 48 chapters of Ezekiel.
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.
