The Lord is There: Studies in the Book of Ezekiel

Ezekiel 48:35 "...And the name of the city from that day shall be, The LORD is There."

"The product of years of study and teaching, The Lord is There will open up the prophecy of Ezekiel to the reader.  This marvelous prophecy expresses the whole of the gospel in Old Testament terms, showing us why we need God’s grace and how that grace will be enacted in the lives of God’s people; how the grand purpose of God’s covenant promise of fellowship with His people is finally accomplished.  Challenging, confronting and comforting, Ezekiel is an often neglected book that every serious Christian should get to know.  The Lord is There will apply this ancient prophecy to the life of every believer."

The goal of any theologian ought to be to give people the Bible.  He ought to help people understand what the Bible says more clearly.  All too many theologians operate in a way that actually takes the Bible away from people, using complex non-intuitive systems or depending heavily on archaeological or historical studies outside the Bible in order to arrive at interpretations that never would have been clear from a plain reading of the text.  My aim in this book is to give you, the reader, the book of Ezekiel- to open it up in a way that makes clear not my own opinions about the prophecy, but what the prophecy actually says.

This Kickstarter project is to help me fund the upfront production expenses of this book.  The book is already written, so you have no worries about whether the project will actually be completed.

In case you're not familiar with how Kickstarter works, you agree to pledge some amount to the project.  The various levels I have selected are listed to the right.  I have a funding goal of $750.  If that funding goal is not reached, then you owe nothing and the project is canceled.  But if it is reached, then you will be charged the amount of your pledge and you will receive the promised reward.  The project can be funded at any level above the goal, so if you want the reward, don't worry about whether the goal has already been reached- you will still get your reward.

Thanks for looking at the project!  I appreciate your support.
