(Review is primarily for the Ezekiel portion of the work)

Selected patristic authors' commentary on Ezekiel and Daniel.

With Ezekiel, this work prominently features Jerome and Gregory the Great.

In terms of the substance of the commentary from patristic authors: one can tell how Ezekiel did not get the treatment Isaiah or even Jeremiah did. As would be expected, heavily invested in Christological association and application. Ezekiel's temple vision seen primarily in terms of the church and its "catholic" structure in the 5th-7th centuries. Honestly, kind of disappointing.

In terms of the commentary selection: I have used many resources in this series, and never have I seen so many lacunae in collections: many passages of considerable length have no commentary provided. Somehow this book has about an equal amount of commentary for Ezekiel, a 47 chapter book and one of the major prophets, and Daniel, which has only 12. I am no patristic scholar, and it might well be that there just really isn't that much commentary on sections of Ezekiel; I am concerned that it was more of an editorial decision that really leads to an impoverishment of Ezekiel.
