Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mein aims to set Ezekiel's ethics firmly in the social and historical context of the Babylonian Exile. Ezekiel's moral concerns and priorities, Mein suggests, are substantially shaped by the social experience of deportation and resettlement. They also represent a creative response to the crisis, providing significant impetus for social cohesion and the maintenance of a distinctively Jewish community.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [264]-282) and indexes.
