First time using this series and like the format to take the scripture to interpretation to application

First time using this series and like the format to take the scripture to interpretation to application. Not the first book I have read by Dr. Duguid and his style and humor are always refreshing. Understanding Ezekiel.

But they leave us there, assuming we can somehow make.

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.

Ezekiel, which is part of The NIV Application Commentary Series, helps readers learn how the messages of Ezekiel can have the same powerful impact today that they had when they were first written.
Reviews about Ezekiel (NIV Application Commentary, The) (7):
Dr. Duguid's comentary is a book I would highly recommend to anyone interested in teaching, preaching or studying the Prophecies of Ezekiel. HIs writing is expository and does not cover every verse of every chapter. However, this commentary is not simplistic by any means as he spends over 450 pages to cover the 48 chapters of Ezekiel.
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.
Duguid is an excellent and knowledgeable OT scholar with the simultaneous ability to make the text accessible to general readers. This commentary in itself is something of a standard among lighter, less technical commentaries for the book of a Ezekiel (from an Evangelical perspective). But what some have said about the Kindle version of other commentaries in this series does in fact apply here. The TOC does not allow navigation of the commentary section itself except for the link "Text and Commentary on Ezekiel." That's it--no subheadings--that one huge, bulky category to cover what is more or less the entire book. It is possible to jump back and forth between commentary sections using the arrows on the 5-way controller, which at least makes it possible to use without going insane, but it's far from ideal.

It really makes one scratch his head over how a professional, major publishing company could put out a Kindle book without a truly navigable TOC. I mean, it's so basic. Partly due to this, I was skeptical of reviews on the series' other commentaries that made this claim; that and the fact that I recently bought the Deuteronomy commentary by Block and it does have a genuinely navigable TOC, complete with the whole long list of subheadings covering the whole commentary section itself (though it, too, has some Kindle problems). Why the inconsistency, I don't know. I really like my Kindle, but the publishing standards for Kindle books--even coming from major publishing companies--are far too often far below the standards for print books, such that sometimes the whole thing just feels somewhat cheap. Anyway, in short, I didn't want to give the fine commentary itself a low rating, but to give potential Kindle-version purchasers a heads up.

Update 11/21/2014: The Kindle version has actually been reformatted so that it now has a full, active TOC, and fortunately Amazon allowed me to "update" to the reformatted version. Props to both Zondervan for reformatting the the book and Amazon for allowing me to get the latest version.
Excellent commentary of a Bible prophecy that is not widely studied. Emphasis God's revelation to the target audience during the Babylonian captivity and the promise for Believers yet to be fulfilled..
Unlike most commentaries, this book is a pleasure to read. It is divided into sections, each dealing with a chapter or two of Ezekiel; for each section, Duguid thoroughly discusses its original meaning, context, and contemporary significance. His discussions are lucid, insightful, and helpful, clearly illuminating the dominant themes. But be aware that in spite of its large size, this is not a verse-by-verse commentary. Duguid devotes much more space to thematic material and context than to technical detail, and in doing so he leaves many questions unanswered. What he says he says well, but if you want to really dig into the text, it might be helpful to use another commentary as a supplement.
Ezekiel has always been an incredibly difficult book for me. This commentary illuminated it and made it fascinating. Highly recommend
Iain Duguid's Commentary on Ezekiel has been perfect for me. When I look to other commentaries on Ezekiel I can obviously find more technically focused contributions but The NIV Application gives enough technical information to communicate the particular pertinent points to one such as me who is not versed in Hebrew. I'm using this commentary for homiletical purposes for mid week messages and it has proved to be invaluable to me, a bi-vocational pastor. I've just finished chapter 24 and I continue to be impressed at how Duguid is able to consistently and appropriately follow the format of Original Meaning, Bridging Contexts, and Contemporary Significance without redundancy. I state this because Ezekiel's 47 chapters have much the same motifs and thus messages yet Duguid is able to bring new nuances of "bridges" and application to bear.
Duguid's commentary offers the perfect balance of scholarly insight, theological understanding, and pertinent illustrations for the believer today. Excellent Work! Chris Hall
