Spirit and Reason : The Embodied Character of Ezekiel's Symbolic Thinking Paperback / softback

Description

By comparing and contrasting the pictures gained from Greek and Mesopotamian cities with Ezekiel's Jerusalem, Launderville masterfully shows how Ezekiel fosters a type of symbolic thinking focused on making the Israelites into living symbols of God.

The Spirit is the reality that connects humans with the cosmic order and enables the workings of the human heartathe place within which reason functions, according to ancient Israelite anthropology.

Ezekiel's symbolic thinking is an integrative rationality in which reason is regarded as operating within the heart through the empowerment and guidance of the Spirit.
