A masterful work that does justice to the nuance of the text. [Full Review]
A useful work in the evangelical stream

Block’s commentary is thorough but not dense. He deals with the text so closely that nothing is overlooked, but he doesn’t dwell there, often zooming right out to look at the book’s big picture as well. While there are other excellent commentaries on Ezekiel, the commentators on the commentaries are unanimous in their praise and most rate this one as the most important work on the book, and a must-have for anyone who wishes to preach through it.

It is difficult to decide between the commentaries by Block and Duguid (See #2 below), but because of its comprehensiveness, I have to consider Block's commentary the most helpful overall. His massive commentary deals with every individual text in detail, but also steps back to discuss the theological implications of each major passage. There are also a number of helpful excursuses on a variety of important topics. Very highly recommended. [Full Review]

Technical and thorough. However, his 'Theological Implications' are proportionally brief. Though a wealth of information, a busy pastor may find Duguid a more helpful tool.

This is one of the best modern commentaries on any biblical book. It is engaging, insightful, scholarly, complete, and useful. Pricey, yes, but worth it. You may never need another commentary on Ezekiel.
The most comprehensive study of the book available, it incorporates a wealth of linguistic and ancient Near Eastern comparative knowledge. [Full Review]
