As of March 1st Paul Joyce’s eagerly awaited commentary on the book of Ezekiel is published in the United States. Ezekiel: A Commentary is volume 482 in the Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies series.
Two weeks ago, a book launch reception was held in Oxford, where the author teaches Hebrew and Old Testament Studies. The party took place at St Peter’s College, Oxford, of which Dr Joyce is a Fellow. The Master of St Peter’s, Professor Bernard Silverman, welcomed guests to the book launch, before Professor Ernest Nicholson introduced and welcomed the volume. The event was attended by many from the Oxford Faculties of Theology and Oriental Studies, and by the Fellows and students of St Peter’s College. Among well-known biblical scholars present were Professors John Barton, John Day, Christopher Rowland and Hugh Williamson.
Dr Joyce recently gave a talk on Ezekiel at the Oxford Jewish Centre, speaking of the book of Ezekiel as a great gift from the Synagogue to the Church, now a rich shared textual resource.
Photos of the event are under the cut! A big thank you to Professor Joyce for sending these to us, too! It looks like great fun was had by all.
