This prophetic biblical book was written in a land awash with false gods and groaning under all kinds of social evil. Eventually, the inevitable happens and God's judgment on his people begins to unfold.

A young Ezekiel, carried off to exile in Babylon, is commissioned by the Lord to warn of a more devastating and unthinkable judgment to come.

Chris Wright vividly explores Ezekiel's varied and dramatic mission at several levels:
- his unwavering commitment to his task
- the social and political background to his work
- the character of his ministry as watchman, evangelist and pastor
- and the wider context of Ezekiel's vision - the knowledge of the Lord in Israel and amongst the nations

Ezekiel strived to bring meaning, comfort and hope to a shattered, decimated and demoralised remnant of God's people, Israel - a challenge Christians must all emulate in our increasingly troubled world today.
