The book of Ezekiel is so named because it contains the prophecies of Ezekiel. Many people regard this book and its prophet with curiosity and confusion, as the book contains perplexing visions and strange imagery.
Ezekiel was a multifaceted individual, part priest, pastor, apocalypticist, theologian, civic planner, and poet or artist; these are all reflected in his book.
A general theme in Ezekiel is his denouncement of legalism and call for right living.
