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.

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.
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.
