Ezekiel studies are flourishing. The 27 essays collected in this volume were first presented at two symposia on the theme “Ezekiel in International Perspective” at the Society of Biblical Literature conferences in St Andrews and Vienna. The principal aim was to widen contact, cultivate understanding, and foster collaboration between international colleagues who, though working on the same ancient text, possess diverse points of view and operate from different methodological frames. The meetings allowed moments of introspection, providing the freedom and opportunity to reflect on questions of appropriate evidence, suitable methodology, and argumentative plausibility by juxtaposing papers from diverse perspectives. The resulting collection is a portrait of the discipline in the present and a prospectus for future research.

Lat year I noted the book as forthcoming here. Dr. Tooman is one of my Hebrew Bible colleagues at the Divinity School of the University of St. Andrews and Dr. Barker received her PhD under his supervision. Congratulations to both on the new volume.
